Wappen von Mössingen

Official blazon

In Schwarz ein silberner Wellenschräglinksbalken, begleitet oben von drei (2:1) silbernen Schildchen, unten von einem silbernen Schalenbrunnen mit aufsteigendem und zu beiden Seiten niederfallendem silbernem Wasserstrahl.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted in 1952. Before 1952 the town did not use arms.

The wavy bend is the Steinlach, which flows through the town. The three shields show the so-called Dreifürstenstein (three princes stone) in the town. The lower part symbolises the village Bad Sebastiansweiler in the municipality. The colours are taken from the arms of the Hohenzollern family, which ruled the area until 1415. In larger images of the arms, the municipality uses the arms of Württemberg, Zollern and Fürstenberg in the three small shields.
