Heigenbrücken Coat of Arms

Shield Argent a drinking vessel Gules flanked by two oak leaves Vert, issuant from base a mount Vert charged with a tunnel Argent masoned Sable with port Sable.
The village was first mentioned in 1477 as "Heygerbruch". In the village there had been a glass kiln. After it had been shut, bad times began in the village. Things got better in the 19th century, when a railway line was built. The Schwartkopftunnel connected the valleys of Aubach and Lohr with the valley of the Aschaff. The length of the tunnel is more than 1km. The base is a representation of the tunnel. The drinking vessel (local language: Kutterolf) is referring to the former glass industry. The leaves are symbolising the location in the Spessart, a forest. The tinctures red and white are those of the Archbishopric of Mainz, to which the area historically belonged. The bar wavy is symbolising the location in the valley of the Elsava
