Weilar Coat of Arms

Shield Argent a pale Vert, charged with a lily-of-the-valley Argent with four blossoms, at dexter quartered of Argent and Sable, at sinister parted by a saltire Sable.
The lily-of-the-valley is representing nature in general, especially the meadows alongside the Baier River, containing numerous endemic species. The saltire is the attribute of St. Andrew, patron saint of the local church. The quartered shield displays the family arms of the Lords of Boyneburg, later upgraded to Imperial Barons (Reichsfreihrren) and Imperial Counts (Reichsgrafen). They played an important role in the village for more than 500 years.
