Coat of Arms

Shield quartered of Gules and Argent, 1st quarter a 6-spokes wheel Argent, 2nd quarter a postal horn Gules, 3rd and 4th quarter a horseshoe in counterchanged colours.
The settlement gained city rights in 1938 on occasion of the merger of the villages of Kelkheim, Münster and Hornau. The arms were approved in 1950, the banner in 1954. The wheel of Mainz was part of the old court seals of Hornau (1581) and Münster (1694). The horn is taken from the arms of Hornau. The horseshoe is the old village symbol of Kelkheim.
