Schefflenz Coat of Arms

Shield mantled, above right lozengy of Azure and Argent, above left Sable a lion rampant Or armed and tongued Gules, in base Argent an oak leaf Vert in fess and a peasecod Vert in pale with peas Argent.
Meaning: In 1972 the municipalities of Ober- Unter- and Mittel-Schefflenz (upper, lower and central) merged with the municipality of Kleineichholzheim. The seals of the three Schefflenz municipalities displayed lion and lozenges of the Palatine Electorate together with a peasecod. Lion and lozenges were taken from the arms of the electorate, to which the municipalities belonged since 1653. The peasecods were canting ("Scheve" in the local language) and differed only in tincture and position. The oak leaf is representing the fomer Kleineichholzheim Municipality.

Banner and arms were approved on 27 April 1972 by the county administration, published in GABl 1083/1973.
