Oberstreu Coat of Arms

Shield parted per bend sinister, at dexter Gules a hen's leg Argent, at sinister Argent a bend sinister Gules.
The leg is taken from the family arms of the Lords of Kere, who had been commissionaires of the Counts of Henneberg. The kin lived in the village since 1453. The red bend sinister is taken from the arms of the Lords of Stein, successors of the former. The tinctures white and red are those of the Bishopric of Würzburg, to which Heustreu belonged until 1803.
