English: the German City of Kirchheimbolanden
Français : de la ville allemande de Kirchheimbolanden
Blazon

Description
Deutsch: Das Wappen wurde durch König Ludwig I. von Bayern am 30.01.1844 verliehen und zuletzt am 18.06.1976 durch die Bezirksregierung, Neustadt an der Weinstraße bestätigt. Es entstammt einem Stadtsiegel aus dem 14. Jahrhundert. Das Schach (eigentlich Blau und Gold) entstammt dem Wappen Philipp von Sponheims welcher die Verleihung der Stadtrechte durch Kaiser Karl IV. 1368 erwirkte. Der Eber entstammt dem Wappen der Grafen von Eberstein, ehemalige Herren der Burg Stauf welche zeitweise die Ortsherrschaft innehatten.
English: The arms are a combination of the arms of the counts of Sponheim (upper part) and the counts of Eberstein (lower part) and are derived from seal from the 14th century. The Counts of Sponheim owned the town in the 13th century and forced Emperor Charles IV in 1368 to grant Kirchheimbolanden city rights. The family ruled the town until 1393. The colours of the chequy field are Or and azure, the present colours are thus historically wrong. The counts of Eberstein founded the castle Stauf, which was later owned by the Counts of Sponheim. The boar is a canting symbol (Eber=boar). The arms were first granted in 1844 and last in 1976.
