Haibach Coat of Arms

Shield Argent parted by a bend wavy Gules, on heart point superimposed by a 6-spokes wheel Argent, in sinister chief an oak twig Vert with two leaves and one acorn, in dexter base three crosses Sable in bend.
The bend wavy is canting and representing the name giving creek (German: Bach). The twig is symbolising the location in the Spessart, a forest. The crosses are wayside crosses alongside the Bessenbacher Weg. They are a local monument but their meaning is unknown. The wheel is representing the Archbishopric of Mainz, to which the area historically belonged.
