Koblenz Coat of Arms

Shield Argent parted by a centred cross Gules, in centre superimposed by a Marian crown Or.
Meaning:
In the 13th century the present arms appear first. The cross on the arms is derived from the arms of the Archbishopric of Trier, to which the city belonged at the time. The crown is described as a Marian Crown, St. Mary being the patron saint of the city. The only time the city used other arms was during the occupation under Napoleon I. In 1810 arms were granted with two wavy bends in the lower half joining in the middle (for Confluentia, as in Koblenz the Mosel and Rhine rivers join). After the defeat of the occupants the old arms were restored.
