Mainz-Bingen County Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per pale into red and black. The dexter side displays a silver (= white) six spokes wheel. The sinister side displays a golden (= yellow), rampant lion, crowned, armed and tongued red. The golden (= yellow) chief is charged by a black eagle, armed and tongued red.
Meaning:
The eagle is representing the Holy Roman Empire, the wheel the Bishopric and Electorate of Mainz, the lion the Palatine Electorate (Kurpfalz). In the county had been the core area of the Electorate of Mainz. Ingelheim, Oppenheim and Nierstein had been under direct imperial rule. The Palatine Counts of Rhine had become the successors of the Counts of Sponheim, who had their dominions around the city of Bingen. The current arms are some kind of reconfiguration of the arms of the former county of Bingen, where the Palatine lion was in the 1st field and an imperial demi-eagle couped per pale in the 2nd field of a shield divided per pale. The wheel of Mainz had been in a small inescutcheon in the centre of the shield.
