Wappen von Randersacker

Official blazon

In Rot der golden nimbierte heilige Stephan in silbernem Diakonsgewand mit der goldenen Märtyrerpalme in der rechten und drei goldenen Steinen in der linken Hand, wachsend aus einer sechseckigen silbernen Kanzel, die mit einem roten Schildchen belegt ist; darin eine silberne Weintraube.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted in 1954, but are based on the oldest seal of the town, dating from 1451.

The arms show St. Stephan, the patron saint of the town, whereas the grapes indicate the importance of the viticulture in the area. The town had tried already in 1936 to renew the arms, but at the time saints in the arms were not acceptable politically. Hupp showed in the 1920s the saint as such, bu without the grapes as on the seal:
