Frankenhardt Coat of Arms

Shield parted enhanced per fess dancetty of Gules and Argent. The partition Argent is charged with three eradicated firs Vert.
The basic pattern, i.e. the fess dancetty with three points, is also known as the Franconian rake. The municipalty's name means "Franconian Hardt", with Hardt usually being a part of the Swabian Jura. Acc. to source "Hardt" also is a synonym for "wood". The arms are thus canting.
