Wappen von Heidelsheim

Official blazon

In Gold ein rot bewehrter schwarzer Adler.

Origin/meaning

Heidelsheim was mentioned as a city in the early 13th century and in 1307 the city was mentioned as a free imperial city. The city thus had the right to use the Imperial Eagle, which appeared on the seals already in the early 14th century. Ever since the city has used the eagle on its seals and arms. The only difference was between 1346 and the late 18th century that the eagle was shown with a breastshield, showing the arms of the Wittelsbach family (see Bayern). These were added as a symbol for the Pfalz, to which the city belonged. The Counts of the Pfalz were of the Wittelsbach family.
