Stadtprozelten Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, a castle Gules with gate tower with cone roof topped by a ball Or, roofs Azure and port and windows Argent, on dexter base a radiant sun Or with face, on sinister base a waxing crescent Or with face, over the port an initial "B" Or.
Stadtprozelten gained city rights in 1355 and was acquired by the Archbishopric of Mainz in 1484 from the Teutonic Order. The arms are based on a seal from the 16th century. The castle probably is a representation of the local base of the Teutonic Order. Sun and moon probably had been local symbols. The initial stands for Brodselden, the former name of the city. A window and a small seal from around 1600 displa different arms: On a red field a silver wall and an impending silver wheel, representing the Archbishopric of Mainz. On banner the current arms are displayed but in different tinctures as follows: background blue, castle white, port and windows black and finally roofs red.

The arms are traditional. The existence of the banner is confirmed at least since 1968.
