Sommerhausen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Azure a radiant sun Or with face, beneath Argent a bunch of grapes Azure between two vine leaves Vert.
The sun is a canting element, the bunch of grapes is symbolising viticulture. The arms are based on local seals since 1664, which all displayed more or less the current pattern.
