Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, St. Martin, nimbed and armed Or, dividing his coat Gules by a sword Argent. He is mounted on a horse passant Argent bridled Gules, in dexter chief a lying beggar Argent.
The arms show St. Martin, the patron saint of the city and of the Archbishopric of Mainz, to which the city belonged. The saint was already used on the oldest seal of the city from the 14th century. Besides the saint, the city often used the wheel of Mainz as the local symbol and arms.
