Wappen von Rotenberg

Official blazon

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

Origin/meaning

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.
