Coat of Arms

Shield Or; a double-headed eagle Sable, armed and tongued Gules, having an inescutcheon parted per fess Argent and Sable upon his breast.
Meaning:
Friedberg was already a city in the 12th or early 13th century. Before 1245 castle and city of Friedberg used a common seal the Imperial (single-headed) eagle is displayed, standing on a canting mount (German: Berg). In the oldest proper city seal from 1220 the eagle was single-headed and became double-headed without crown around 1328,. The inescutcheon was added in the beginning of the 16th century and since the 17th century also in local seals. Its origin is not clear, but it is probably derived from the arms of the Burgraves of Friedberg. The mountain disappeared around the same time. The arms have not change since then. Siebmacher (1605) erroneously displayed an inescutcheon charged with a tower. In the 20th century the arms were simplified and attributes of the Imperial eagle were omitted.

Ockstadt Coat of Arms

Shield parted per bend sinister, above right Or an axe's blade Gules in bend sinister, beneath Sable three cherry blossoms Argent seeded Or.
Meaning:
In 1956 arms had been proposed as follows: shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent three bars Sable, at sinister Gules an axe's blade Argent. The blade is the old village sign, which has been used on boundary stones since the 17th century. It is most likely derived from the arms of the Lords of Frankenstein, who used the same symbol in their arms. The black bars are derived from the oldest known arms of the Lords of Ockstadt (1280-1462). The current arms were approved on 24 June 1964
