Helmstadt Coat of Arms

Baroque shield Or three heraldic roses Gules ordered 2:1, between the roses a mace Azure in fess.
Without any doubt the roses are taken from the arms of the Counts of Wertheim. The origin of the mace, a local symbol, is unknown. The pattern appeared on seals from the first half of the 18th century. The pattern disappeared in the 19th century and was restored in 1914. The tinctures had been chosen arbitrarily.
