Laudenbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted by a bend sinister wavy Azure, above right barry of six of Or and Gules, beneath left Argent a horn of an ibex Sable.
The blue bend wavy, representing a creek (German: Bach) is canting. The dexter half is taken from the arms of the Counts of Rieneck. They sold their possessions in Laudenbach in 1315 to theBarons of Fechenbach, who gave back the village to the counts as a fiefdom in 1385. The counts died out in 1559 and the village was acquired by the Archbishopric of Mainz. The barons died out in 1892. The horn is taken from their family arms and is reminding on their Lordship of Laudenbach.
