Hettstadt Coat of Arms

Baroque shield Gules, an enthroned nimbed saint Argent with mitre and holding a sword in bend in his right hand, in sinister chief a grapevine Or leafed Argent, in base three piles Argent.
The saint probably is St. Kilian, who was murdered in 689 in Würzburg. He is known as Frankonian apostle and first Bishop of Würzburg. The Frankonian rake in base is also alluding to the bishopric. The grapevine is symbolising viticulture.
