Civic heraldry of Germany
In Rot ein durchgehendes silbernes Kreuz, im (heraldisch) rechten Obereck eine goldene Königskrone.
Korntal was founded as a separate municipality in 1819 and became a city in 1958. Until 1956 only the three deer antlers of Württemberg were used on the seals of the town, no own arms were used. In 1956 the present arms were granted. The cross in the arms symbolises the Hernhutter movement, a religious movement, who played a major role in the development of the city. The crown symbolises the fact that the dukes of Württemberg had important rights in the present municipality.
