|Heraldry of the World (Wappen der Welt)
Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
In gespaltenem Schild vorne in Gold vier rote Balken, hinten in Blau ein silberner Balken, im blauen Herzschild eine von Rot und Silber gevierte Fahne an schräggestelltem goldenem Kreuzstab.
The arms were adopted in 1896.
Ilmspan did not have its own arms before 1896, the local seal only showed the name of the village. In 1895 the local council applied at the State Archives for new arms. The Archives proposed the above arms, which combine the arms of the Counts of Rieneck (red/golden bars) and Leuchtenburg (blue/silver), with the banner of the State of Würzburg. Ilmspan historically belonged to the Archbishops of Würzburg, who gave it in loan first to the Counts of Rieneck and later to the Counts of Leuchtenberg.
