Wappen von Schelklingen

Official blazon

Von Rot und Silber fünfmal schräglinks geteilt.

Origin/meaning

Schelkingen developed as a village around the castle of the Counts of Berg-Schelklingen in the 12th century and received city rights in the early 13th century. In 1343 the city became a possession of Austria and in 1806 of Württemberg.

The arms are based on the arms of the Counts of Berg-Schelklingen. The arms, although with the bends the other way round, appeared already on the first, 14th century, seal of the city. The present arms appear for the first time in the 17th century. The number of bends and the colours have changed several times during the centuries, but the present colours are the original colours.
