Arms of Gerabronn, Germany


Granted 1902

Blazon: Per quarterly argent and sable, in the first and third a horse salient of the second

The arms are evidently derived from the black-and-white quarters of the Hohenzollerns, via the cadet branch of the family that ruled as Margraves of Brandenburg and Ansbach.

You know what, I don’t have anything to say about these. These are GREAT arms. Simple, clean charges, straightforward blazon, clear historical significance. The only way this could possibly be better is if there was some kind of weird ancient legend connected to the horse. If you know of a weird ancient legend about the horse, PLEASE TELL ME. Or if you know any weird ancient legends in general. I love weird ancient legends. Anyway, fantastic arms, 10/10, would absolutely paint on my shield before suffering an arrow wound and dying of sepsis weeks later.
