Bergrheinfeld Coat of Arms

A Renaissance shield with green top edge parted per pale, at dexter Azure a bend sinister Argent charged with three annulets Azure, at sinister Gules three piles Argent, over all on middle base point a triplemount Or.
The triplemount is a canting element referring to the suffix "-berg". The dexter half displays the differentiated arms of Bishop Julius Echter of Mespelbrunn, his personal arms displayed a bend instead. The sinister half, the so called Franconian rake, is referring to the Bishops of Würzburg, who also had the title of a Duke of Franken.
