Blazon: Gules four beech leaves conjoined in cross or

The beech (Buche) leaves refer to the name of the town, one for each of the municipalities that were incorporated into the town. The gules of the field is allegedly a reference to the martyrdom of the town’s founder, Gisela von Assach; while she almost certainly founded the village in 1140, her status as a martyr is questionable.
