Effeltrich Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, two round towers Argent with cone roofs, connected by a wall of the same, in chief an impending apple Or with stem and leaf.
The apple is canting, as the name of the municipality means apple orchard in Old High German. Towers and wall are alluding to the local graveyard, an important listed building.
