Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, chapé of three Argent, in base a black serifed initial "H".
Since 1342 the village was ruled completely by the Bishopric of Würzburg. Under the rule of the bishops Hilders became seat of a subcounty (Amt) and a court (Centgericht). Already fortified in the late Middle Ages, the village gained the staus of a market town in 1798 by Bishop Georg Karl zu Fechenbach. In the 16th century the village several times was pawned to other kins and thus never had proper symbols before the 17th century. The arms display the Franconian rake, which also is part of the arms of the bishopric. The initial as a distinguishing mark is the proper symbol of the municipality.
