Fischerbach Coat of Arms

Shield Gules two fish Or in saltire, bordure nebuly of Azure and Argent.
The bordure is taken from the arms of the Counts of Fürstenberg, local rulers since the 16th century, however in counterchanged tinctures. The fish are canting. They are based on a seal of the Reeves of Weiler from the 18th century. The fish were depicted on top of a church. Fischerbach consisted of Fischerbach proper, the hamlets of Weiler and Eschau and the Waldstein valley. The whole area had been already united as one municipality since the 30-Years-War.
