Buchenbach Coat of Arms

[Buchenbach municipal CoA] image by Valentin Poposki and Klaus-Michael Schneider, 25 Nov 2019

Shield parted per pale with a triplemount Vert as base, at dexter Argent a beech Vert issuant from the mount's dexter peak, at sinister Gules a fess wavy Argent.
The sinister half displays a modification of the arms of Austria, to which the municipality historically belonged. Tree and fess wavy are furthermore canting together (beech and creek, German: Buche and Bach). The mount is alluding to the location in the Black Forest (Schwarzwald).
