Kammerstein Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Or a demi-eagle Sable, armed and tongued Gules and couped per pale, at sinister Argent three 6-spokes wheels Gules in pale.
The eagle is a differentiated imperial double-headed eagle, as the local castle had been an imperial possession. In 1364 village and castle were acquired by the Burgraves of Nürnberg. The wheels are taken from the family arms of the Lords of Kammerstein, who had been imperial commissionaires in the village.
