Wappen von Hochborn

Official blazon

(de)

Origin/meaning

The arms show in the upper part the lion of the Pfalz and in the lower five oak leaves. The arms appeared as such on the seal of the village from 1537. The village at the time belonged to the Pfalz. The oak leaves are probably canting for the name of the village at the time, Blatmarsheim (Blatt is leaf).
