Wappen von Herbolzheim

Official blazon

(de) In halbgeteiltem und gespaltenem Schild vorne oben in Rot ein silberner Balken, unten in Blau ein silberner Flügel, hinten in Gold ein halber, golden bewehrter und rot bezungter schwarzer Adler am Spalt, die Brust belegt mit einer halben gestürzten silbernen Pflugschar.

Origin/meaning

The village originally was a loan of the Lords of Üsenberg to the Bishops of Strassbourg (France) and became Austrian in 1415. The oldest seal of the town dates from 1520 and shows the wing of the arms of Üsenberg combined with the arms of Austria in the upper part and a plough-iron (probably an old village-symbol) in the lower part.

Later that century (around 1586) the arms were changed; the right part was now the combination of Üsenberg and Austria (see also Endingen and Kenzingen), whereas half a German Imperial eagle was place in the left part. On the eagle the plough-iron was placed. The arms never changed since.
