Wappen von Hochemmingen

Official blazon

(de) In durch eine goldene Leiste geteiltem Schild oben in Blau ein wachsender, rot bezungter goldener Löwe, unten in Blau ein goldenes Schräggitter.

Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted in 1896.

The arms are based on a small seal from the second half of the 18th century. The seal showed the arms, with helmet and as a crest a man or soldier. The seal probably was used by a local governor or sheriff for the Princes of Fürstenberg, to which the village belonged, sealing on behalf of the council. It is not known to whom these arms belonged.
