Wappen von Kandern

Official blazon

(de) In Gold eine rote Kanne mit Deckel.


The arms were officially granted on November 11, 1975.

The jug (Kanne) is a canting symbol, which was first used on border stones as a village sign in the 18th century. Even though Kandern was a relatively large village and a town since the 16th century, there are no old seals known. The oldest seals date from the early 19th century and show a shield with the jug. All later seals and images show thus mug as arms, but the size and shape of the jug have changed considerably during the last two centuries.
