Schwarzenfeld Coat of Arms

Shield parted by a fess wavy Argent, above Sable a wooden throughout bridge Or including a little customs house of the same, beneath Azure a carp Argent.
The fess wavy is representing the Naab River, the bridge the location alongside the road between Prag and Mannheim via Nürnberg. Breeding of carps, especially mirror carps, had been an important local business line since the 19th century. The tinctures silver and blue are taken from the family arms of the Landgraves of Leuchtenberg, former local rulers.
