Wappen von Vogt

Official blazon

(de) In einem schwarzen Feld ein aufsteigendes goldenes Ross mit rotem Zaumzeug, auf dem ein bebarteter Mann mit gelbem Gewand, gelbem Hut mit Federbusch und roten Stulpenstiefeln sitzt.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on February 22, 1951.

The council first applied for arms in 1949, and two designs were made. As there were no older arms or seals available, a new composition had to be designed. The first proposal showed a skylark above a black bend. These symbols were derived from the arms of the Syrgen von Syrgenstein family, who played a major role in the local history. The second proposal showed a mounted man, dressed as a 17th century governor, or Landvogt. The rider thus was a canting symbol. The council choose the latter proposal, which was granted in 1951.
