Malsch Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Azure, a throughout facetted demi-cross Argent, couped per pale; at sinister Gules an "O" Argent, parted by a barrulet of the same.
The village belonged to the Bishopric of Speyer from 1302 until 1802. The demi cross is a modification of the arms of the bishopric. The existence of local court seals is proven since 1494, but the first existing prints are from 1523. That seal displayed a vine plant, stressing the importance of viticulture in the Medieval. In the 18th century with print from 1775 the village used a seal, displaying number zero, striked through by a horizontal bar. Usually this charge was considered to be a measure of capacity for grain (German: Sester).

The arms were adopted in 1901. The banner was already in use before 1935.
