Ebermannstadt Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess; above parted per pale, at dxter Azure a king's head Argent crowned and dressed Or, at sinister Gules a key Argent in bend; beneath Or a boar passant Sable on top of a mount issuant Vert.
The first seal made shortly after 1323 displayed only the canting boar (German: Eber) charged with a key in bend and an impending king's head in chief. The latter had been omitted between 1360 and 1603. The head is symbolising the German king, who granted city rights. The key is taken from the arms of the Schlüsselberg kin, local rulers until 1347. The oldest depiction of the arms in 1603, having basically the current pattern but in a red cartouche, influenced all later seals. Since 1647 a second key appeared on local seals. In 1928 the arms were corrected and the second key was omitted.

The arms were approved in 1928. The monocolur was introduced in 1926 by the city council.
