Coat of Arms

Shield Azure; an embattled wall Argent, crowned by three towers of the same, the central tower embattled, the others with cone roofs Gules topped by balls Or, two quatrefoils impending Or between the towers, in base Gules a lion passant Or.
Meaning:
The arms are derived from the oldest known seal of the city, known since 1259. The seal shows a city wall and a lion in the base. The lion most likely is the lion of Hessen, as the city has always been a possession of the Counts of Hessen. The seal does not show the bars on the lion though. The lion is mostly shown as the lion of the Welfen kin, who ruled wide parts of Northern Germany. The origin of the colours is thus not clear.
The arms were approved in 1908 and again on 24 July 1975.

Breidenstein Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Sable three trefoils Or ordered per pale, at sinister Or a B-shaped wolf trap Sable.
Meaning:
King Wenzel granted city rights to Breidenstein in 1398, which could be claimed til the end of the 19th century. Nevertheless no historical city seals or arms are known. The arms are derived from the arms of the medieval Barons of Breidenbach, who ruled the city for a long time. Their arms displayed three trefoils, a wolf trap and a kettle-hook, which was removed in the city arms. The shape of the wolf trap was slightly changed to form the letter "B", alluding to the city's initial.
The current arms were devised and approved on 5 June 1954, after Breidenbach had regained the title of a city in 1953.

Wallau Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, issuant from base a triplemount Vert, a fox rampant Gules eyed Argent.
Meaning:
The arms are a new creation from 1955, as neither court seals nor municipal seals had existed before. The triplemount is representing the Höllenberg (= hell's mountain) and the forests around the borough. The fox is alluding to a local saga, in which a mythical creature, disguised as a fox with oversized eyes plays a role. Green and white had been the local colours long before and were included into the arms and the newly created flag.
Flag and arms were approved in 1955 by Minister of Interior of Hesse.
