The RIMBACH VND ZOTZENBACHER GERICHTS SIGEL IN AMBT SCHÖNBERG from 1718 displays greater arms with an inverted inescutcheon of Erbach, i.e. one star above and two beneath. The helmet is crested by a Justitia issuant with sword and scales. Based upon this seal the current arms were approved in 1926. The bars are representing the Lordship of Breuberg and the scales is a reduction of the Justitia.
