The town consists of the two centres of Grebenhagen and Schwarzenborn.
Coat of arms
Schwarzenborn's civic coat of arms might be heraldically described thus: Argent a goat-headed spreadeagle sable langued gules, surmounted by an inescutcheon sable a mullet of six Or.
Schwarzenborn's arms bear a likeness to both Neukirchen's and Schwalmstadt's. All three have the goat-headed spreadeagle and a star on the inescutcheon (small shield within the bigger one), but colouring varies among the three.
Economy and infrastructure
The town is well known for being a Bundeswehr base with a large training area, furnishing some 300 jobs to local civilians, making the Bundeswehr the town's biggest employer. The garrison is home of the Jägerregiment 1 (1st Ranger Regiment), which is the infantry element of the German Army's Luftbewegliche Brigade 1 (1st Air Mobile Brigade) at Fritzlar Army Base.
