Darmstadt-Dieburg County Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess into gold (= yellow) over blue. Above is a red demi-lion issuant, armed and tongued blue and holding a red wheel with six spokes in his forpaws. Below the field is scattered by 23 silver (= white) 4-point stars.

Each of the 4-point stars represents one municipality.
