Wappen von Zainingen

Official blazon

(de) In Blau eine aus dem Unterrand emporkommende silberne Schäferschippe, beiderseits begleitet von je drei goldenen Haberährchen.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on June 3, 1948.

The arms show a typical tool used by shepherds (it is called a Schäferschippe in German, I have no English translation), flanked by 6 oat grains. The arms simply indicate the main activities in the town at the time, the cultivation of oats, and keeping sheep.
