Coat of Arms of Borough

Shield Argent with base Gules, charged with a 6-spokes wheel Argent, above St. Martin and the beggar.
Meaning:
The wheel in the lower part is also taken from the arms of the Archbishopric of Mainz, to which the city historically belonged. The oldest seal of a lay judge, known from 1277, as well as a municipal seal from 1300 both display the wheel only. St. Martin, the patron saint of the municipality and of the Archbishopric of Mainz, appears on the 3rd municipal seal and a lay judge's seal from 1325, also containing the wheel. The arms are based on this seal. The wheel was the actual wheel, displayed on a boundary stone from 1462, and displayed as the typical doubled wheel in 1531. All later seals display the current combination, but sometimes the wheel is also displayed as the typical double-wheel of Mainz. Lorch gained city rights in 1885.
The arms were approved in 1908.
