Wappen von Hechingen (kreis)

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on October 2, 1958.

The arms show the shield of the Counts of Zollern. The Counts of Zollern-Hechingen, one of the branches of the main family, owned an area which is nearly identical to the area of the district. The wall represents the Hohenzollern castle, from which the Prussian royal family descended. The Prussian eagle represents both the family as the fact that the district belonged to Prussia from 1850-1945.
