Graben-Neudorf Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, two spades Argent hilted Sable in saltire, over all an impending cross patty Argent.
The arms of former Graben municipality displayed since 1901 the image of the seal of the namesake district (German: Amt), which was in use in the 16th and 17th century. Among others the district arms displayed the spades in saltire as a canting element. Literally a "peace of wood used for digging" (German: Grabscheit) is a synonym for a spade. Neudorf adopted proper arms in 1907, displaying an impending cross patty, a modification of the arms of the Bishopric of Speyer, as main charge. Both municipalities merged on 1 January 1972 and both main charges were combined in the new arms. The tinctures had already been those of both former municipalities.
