Schöllkrippen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Gules a 6-spokes wheel Argent, beneath Or on top of a triplemount issuant Vert three maces Sable in fan.
The upper half displays the arms of the Archbishopric of Mainz, which ruled the town until 1670 and then gave it to the Counts of Schönborn as a fiefdom. The maces on a triplemount appeared first on a district seal of Schöllkrippen with an additional date "1667". The shield was crested and had additional initials "MW". It is supposed that it had been the arms of a commissionaire of the archbishopric. The tinctures of the current arms had been chosen arbitrarily.
