Arenshausen Coat of Arms

The shield is divided into red over green by a silver chevron. Above right in a red field is a silver bend sinister. Above left in a red field is a silver 6-spokes wheel. Beneath in the green field is a silver angel lined black holding a book, charged with a cross, in his hands.
The angel already appeared on local seals until 1953. He is representing St. Matthew the Apostle. The chevron is representing the initial letter "A" in the communes name and , as a roof, the suffix "-hausen" as well. The bend wavy is representing Leine River. Finally the wheel is alluding to the Archbishops of Mainz, the former ruler.
