Poxdorf Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, above a mitre Gules, beneath a lion passant guardant Sable tongued Gules.
The mitre is stressing the close relationships between the Archbishopric of Bamberg and the village. The lion is the heraldic animal of the Lords of Hohenlohe-Brauneck and is also representing the different liege lords of the village. The tinctures red and white are also alluding to the archbishopric.
