Untermerzbach Coat of Arms

Shield Vert parted by an abased fess wavy Argent, two snakes Or intertwined and issuant from flanches, in chief an impending cross Latin Argent.
The snakes are representing Obermerzbach. The image is at the top of the porticus of the local Romanic church from the 13th century. The cross is taken from the arms of Pallotine Order (Latin: Societas Apostolatus Catholici ), which established an educational institution in Untermerzbach. The fess wavy is representing the name giving Merzbach, a creek. The green colour and the fess wavy are referring to the location in the Itzgrund, a valley.
