Freudenberg Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is quarterly divided. Above right in a silver (= white) field is a black demi-eagle, armed and tongued red and couped per pale. Above left the blue field is divided bya golden (= yellow) fess wavy. Below right in a blue field is a golden (= yellow) heraldic rose. Below left in a silver (= white) field are three black peaks of a ridge of mountains.
Freudenberg gained city rights in 1333. The city used in the 14th century a seal with an eagle and rose derived from the arms of the Counts of Wertheim-Breuberg, who ruled the city at the time. In 1612/1617 the city became a possession of the Bishopric of Würzburg and the new seals showed St. Lorenz, the local patron saint, as well as the arms of the bishopric. Seals with similar compositions were used until the late 19th century. Demi-eagle and rose are symbolizing the Counts of Wertheim, while ridge and fess wavy are symbolizing the hilly landscape on the banks of Main River.
