Hagenbüchach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess wavy, above Argent a pair of scales Sable, beneath Vert two beech branches with five leaves each and issuant from a stem, on heart point an inescutcheon quartered of Argent and Sable.
The line of partition is symbolising the location in the Fembachgrund valley. The green colour is symbolising the name, which means "hague". The scales are alluding to the seat of a historical court of justice of the Burgraves of Nürnberg in 1414. The beech is a canting element. Its number of leaves is representing of 10 former villages. The inescutcheon displays the arms of the Princes of Brandenburg-Bayreuth, former local rulers and manorial lords. Inescutcheon and beech branches had already been on a seal from the 17th century of the court journal.
