Granted 1954 – 1971
Blazon: Gules two stalks of wheat in saltire surmounted by a croizer in pale or, overall a plowshare argent
I’m sure you can’t guess that this was historically a farming town. The heraldic allusions are very subtle. (They’re not.) The croizer reflects the town’s history as a possession of the abbeys of Ottobeuren and Bebenhausen, and the colors evidently derive from the Tübingen counts palatine (or a gonfanon gules).
In use since at least 2008
Blazon: Per fess I per bend sinister gules two hammers in saltire or and of the last a plowshare of the first, II of the first a stag statant of the second
The stag is drawn from the arms of the county that shares its name with the village, while the hammers represent the local steelworks and the plowshare stands for agriculture.
Granted 1985; in use since 1810
Blazon: Per bend or and azure, issuant from a mount in base a stalk of wheat proper between two plowshares addorsed argent
The name can be roughly translated as “wave border” and presumably refers to the Rußbach, which formerly flowed through the village green and caused considerable flooding. The river was diverted away from the town in 1772.
In use since at least 2016
Blazon: Per pale azure and or, a plowshare fesswise between three sheaves of wheat and a vine leafed and fructed conjoined in base, all counterchanged
The vine may be an allusion to the Pernau monastery, who owned vineyards in the area.
In use since 1902; granted 1961
Blazon: Gules a lion counter-rampant double-queued or holding in the front paws a plowshare argent
While the region has probably been settled since Roman times, the first mention of a town with a similar name dates to 1094.
In use since at least 1612
Blazon: Gules a fess argent surmounted by a plowshare sable
The arms of the town are derived from those of the Babenbergs with the plowshare representing St. Cunigunde, who walked over red-hot plowshares to prove her innocence of adultery. Some older depictions of the arms show the plowshare as or.
In use since 1971?
Blazon: Or a horse salient gules, in the sinister chief a plowshare point in base azure
