According to legend, the town’s name comes from an incident in the early thirteenth century, where a man accused another of killing his father. When the former came to kill the latter, he saw a cross in the air above his head and dropped the sword.
Blazon: Vert a castle on a chief or a cross of Santiago gules between two hemp leaves of the field
The hemp leaves (cáñamos) are a canting reference to the town’s name, which it has borne since 1575.
Blazon: Per fess argent a castle gules windowed or and of the last a bend wavy azure
The castle may be either a reference to or a representation of one of two local castles; the castle of Prim, a military residence that once hosted a meeting between Juan Prim y Prats and Pope Pius IX, or the castle Milagro (Castle of the Miracle) which was built by Rodrigo Jiménez de Rada during the Reconquista.
Blazon: Argent on a mount vert a castle in ruin gules, in chief on a point dexter sable a bendlet and a molet of six points of the field and in sinister chief a like molet of the fourth
The municipal arms incorporate elements of each of the three former towns that form the present-day Herdwangen-Schönach. The castle is from Großschönach (where it was a depiction of Ramsberg Castle), the molets from Herdwangen, and the bendlet from Oberndorf.

The Order of Santiago took possession of the region around the town in 1186, ultimately using it as a military basis during the Reconquista. They were formally granted ownership in 1243; this is likely the source of the cross of Santiago. I can only speculate that the column is a reference to the many local ruins from Roman times.
Blazon: Per fess I per pale gules a castle triple-towered or windowed azure and argent a cross of Calatrava gules, II per fess dancetty or and gules
The arms in the base half of the shield are those of Rodrigo Téllez Girón, twenty-ninth master of the Order of Calatrava, who both founded and gave his name to the town.
Blazon: Azure on a pale gules between six houses argent a castle triple-towered or between in chief a cross couped and in base a crescent of the second
These may be canting arms, as the town’s name derives from “poblet,” a ancient diminutive of “town.”
