Wappen von Rotenberg

Official blazon

In Blau auf grünem Dreiberg ein goldener Zinnenturm, darauf drei Türmchen mit spitzen Helmen.


Rotenberg received city rights in 1338 from Emperor Ludwig of Bayern. The oldest seal dates from 1499 and shows already a castle on a mountain (Berg). All later seals and arms show a similar composition, but the shape of the building differs widely during the centuries.
