Sankt Leon-Rot Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Azure a tiara Argent with coronets Or and scarves Argent, at sinister Or a sickle Sable bladed Azure.
The tiara is representing fhe former St.Leon municipality and referring to Pope Leo IX, who is said to have sanctified the local parish church in 1049. The sickle had been a local symbol of the former Rot municipality. Rot had been a colony of St. Leon and was separated from the parent municipality in 1289. Both settlements had been dominions of the Bishopric of Speyer until 1802/1803. They merged in 1964.The tinctures of the dexter half are those of the Bishopric of Speyer.
