Rodalben Associated Municipality Coat of Arms

Shield Or with orle Gules a griffin rampant cowed Gules.
Meaning:
The arms are derived from the city arms of Rodalben, which display a silver griffin on a blue shield. Most villages in the associated municipality historically belonged to the Amt Gräfenstein of the Margraviate of Baden. Its seals displayed the canting griffin (German: Greif), which was also the supporter of the Badenian arms. The arms show the griffin in the tinctures of the margraviate. These tinctures are the same as those of the County of Hanau-Lichtenstein, to which the village of Donsieders belonged. The orle is symbolising the status of an associated municipality.

Rodalben Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a sinister facing griffin rampant cowed Argent, partially armed Or and tongued Gules.
Meaning:
The arms are based on a court seal of the former Gräfenstein district (German: Amt) of the Margraviate of Baden from the 18th century. The pattern was also used on seals of the city and of the municipality of Petersberg. The city applied for these arms in 1906. But the approval was refused, as the city had been seat of the district, but it had not been the only entity in the district. The griffin had been a supporter of the arms of the Margraves of Baden, former local rulers. Rodalben gained city rights in 1963.
Source: Stadler 1966, p.55
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 11 May 2023

Flag and banner were approved on 10 December 1986. The historical banner was in use at least since 1966 and abolished in 1986. The arms were approved on 22 December 1948 by Minister of Interior of Rheinland-Pfalz.
