I am a fourth generation American Eckhardt. The main insignia on my family's coat of arms is a shield with an arm clad in armor holding a sword and cutting with it an oak branch. The oak branch is denoted by its leaves and acorns.
I was told that different branches of the Eckhardt Family have individually adorned their shields, but every Eckhardt coat of arms has a shield and an arm cleaving an oak branch. This symbolizes that the family bears a "strong sword."
Our family's shield has a green leaf with a silver key on it, which identifies us as coming from Heidenheim and the small towns in that vicinity.
