Langen Arms

Shield Or an oak branch Vert with three acorns Gules, in base superimposed by a cutten branch Sable.
The arms were approved in 1959, but are based on a seal dating from 1622. The town was situated in the middle of the Dreieich Forest, which was an Imperial possession. The horizontal stick is a local symbol to distinguish the arms from other arms in the area (such as Egelsbach). The colours were not officially determined until 1959 and many different combinations occur.
