Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on ?

After the second world war the south western part of Germany was divided in three territories : Baden, Wurttemberg-Hohenzollern and Württemberg-Baden. The states were created in 1945 and combined to Baden-Württemberg in 1952.

The arms of Württemberg-Hohenzollern show the three antlers of Württemberg quartered with the colours of the banner of Württemberg. These arms are identical to the former State of Württemberg, but without the deer supporters.
