Ohrenbach Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, issuant from base a gate lodge Or with port Gules charged with a crozier issuant Argent in pale, in dexter chief a flag Argent displaying a peasants' boot Sable, in sinister chief a heron's head reguardant Argent armed Or.
In 1978 Ohrenbach merged with Habelsee and Oberscheckenbach. The gate lodge is a representation of the hospital of the Order of St. John in Reichardsroth. The crozier is alluding to Kilian, the first bishop of Würzburg. The tinctures red and white are those of the Free Impeial City of Rothenburg upon Tauber, the former ruler. The flag is alluding to the peasants' insurrection of 1525 mainly against Rothenburg. The heron's head is taken from the arms of the Hübschmann kin and is representing Habelsee.
