Kleinostheim Coat of Arms

Shield Gules with base wavy Argent, an eradicated oak Or flanked by a wheel Argent at dexter and a spade blade Argent at sinister.
Base wavy and oak are representing the location between the Main River and the Spessart, a forest. The wheel is taken from the arms of the Archbishopric of Mainz, to which the village historically belonged. The spade is alluding to excavations, which proved the existence of settlements since times of the Celts.
