Coat of Arms

Shield Or a coronet Vert gemmed Gules.
The arms are based on a seal from the middle of the 18th century. The seal already showed a coronet, and was the seal of the Bücherthal, a valley, of which Niederrodenbach was the main village. The origin of the coronet as a village symbol is not known. The colours are taken from the arms of the Counts of Hanau, who owned the area.
The arms were granted in 1961.
