Arms of Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany

Villingen-Schwenningen

Granted 2001

Blazon: Per pale argent and azure a fess wavy counterchanged; in the dexter chief an eagle displayed gules armed or, in the sinister chief a swan close proper

The eagle is drawn from the arms of the Zähringer family, by way of the former village of Villingen, while Schwenningen contributed its canting swan. The fess wavy symbolizes the rivers Brigach and Neckar.
