Walsdorf Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Or a twitch Sable superimposing a leather strap Gules, at sinister Gules a gridiron Argent, over all in base an inescutcheon Sable charged with a fess Or.
The twitch is alluding to the Lords of Thüngfeld, local rulers in the 15th and 16th century. The gridiron is an attribute of St. Lawrence, the local patron saint. The inescutcheon displays the arms of the Lords of Crailsheim. The basic tinctures are those of the Bishopric of Bamberg.
