Deining Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Gules a saltire vair ancien, beneath Or three 6-point stars Azure.
The upper half is derived from the arms of the Schweppermann family, who lived in the village in the 14th century. The stars are taken from the family arms of the Barons of Löwenthal, who acquired Deining Estate in 1692. Its last member, Johann Nepomuk of Löwenthal died in 1828.
