Heusenstamm Arms

The shield is Argent, displaying an eradicated oak Vert having three acorns Or capsuled Sable. The shield has a chief dancetty Gules.
The division and red and silver colours were taken from the arms of the Lords of Schönborn, who acquired the village in 1661. The oak in base is symbolizing the fact that the village was part of the Imperial Forest of Dreieich (= three oaks). The arms were designed and approved on 30 October 1952.
