In use in 1972
Blazon: Or a lime tree eradicated vert, in base a plowshare azure
Unfortunately, I don’t have any information on these arms, but it doesn’t appear that they took any influence from the various noble families who ruled the land (Validlingen, Wernau, Württemberg, etc.) I’d suspect the arms are a reference to local agriculture, but I don’t have anything to back that up.
Blazon: Gules a plowshare point in chief argent
There is a Hirrlingen family dating back to 1000, while the place appears to be younger; its first mention was in 1275, at which point the main line of Hirrlingens had died out. I don’t know what the Hirrlingen family arms were; it doesn’t seem like any depictions of them have survived. It looks like the Hohenbergs (per fess argent and gules) took over in the mid-thirteenth century, so it’s possible that the tinctures are drawn from their arms – but argent and gules is also an extremely common combination, so it’s equally possible that it’s completely irrelevant.
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.
