Gras-Ellenbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per saltire; above Azure a lion's head barry of six of Argent and Gules; beneath Azure two barrulets wavy Argent; the other quarters Or a linden leaf Gules.
Meaning:
The lion is taken from the arms of Hessen. The lower quarter displays local creeks and is a canting element (Bach = creek). The linden leaves are a symbol for the Nibelungensaga, hero Siegfried, having taken a bath in the blood of the dragon, he had killed before, had been made vulnerable by a linden leaf, which kept away the dragon's blood from his neck.
The arms were approved on 9 August 1966.
