Rathen Coat of Arms

Renaissance Shield Argent with bordure Gules a lamb salient Argent on base Vert.
The arms are probably based on local seals. The tinctures don´t match heraldic rules. The lamb is realised as white on a grey background. The direction of the lamb is described uncorrectly in source.
