Rohrberg Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per bend. Above in a silver field is a green mount issuant, charged with a silver 6-spokes wheel. Beneath in a golden field are three bulrushes, leaved vert and seeded black.
The mount and the bulrushes are canting elements, as the municipality's name means "mountain of bulrushes". The wheel is alluding to the Archbishops of Mainz, the former rulers.
