Wappen der Welt
Civic heraldry of Germany
The arms date already from the 13th century. The oldest known seal of the city dates from 1306 and shows already the lion with three stars. The lion probably is the lion of Habsburg, as the city already before the granting of the city rights in 1300 was a possession of the Habsburg family. The colours were finally officially described in 1902.
The arms by Hupp in the Kaffee Hag albums +/- 1925
