Wappen von Gerlingen

Official blazon

  • (de) Unter goldenem Schildhaupt, darin eine schwarze Hirschstange, in Schwarz zwei abgewendete goldene Radfelgen.

Origin/meaning

The oldest known seal of Gerlingen dates from the late 16th century and shows a bundle of grapes, indicating the importance of viticulture for the village. Until 1937 the village used a grape in its seals. The above arms were granted in 1937 and show in the upper part the deer antler of Württemberg, and in the lower part two parts of a rim of a wheel (Radfelgen). The rims are taken from the arms of the Lords of Gerlingen. As the colours of these arms were not known, they were chosen complementary to those in the chief.
