*A "Verbandsgemeinde" (VG) is a combination of several municipalities to an administration community in Rhineland-Palatinate.

Why does this municipality use the Bavarian arms? And is the municipality allowed to use a state's arms?
Pascal Vagnat, 31 Mar 2010

I don't know why the Bavarian arms are used. The municipality has belonged to the Bavarian Palatinate for over a century - perhaps that's why. Apparently it is allowed, for the arms were granted and are being used.
