Wappen von Hottingen

Official blazon

(de) In Blau vor einer goldenen Garbe schräggekreuzt ein silberner Rechen und eine silberne Sense.


The arms were never officially granted.
The arms were already used by the council in the late 19th century, in the early 19th century only a garb was used on the seal. The arms indicate the importance of agriculture for the municipality.
In 1911 the State Archives proposed new arms, a red shield with a gold spinning wheel. This was a symbol for the local wool spinning industry. The local council, however, rejected the proposal and continued with the old arms.
