Wappen von Renchen

Official blazon

  • (de) In Silber ein rotes Kleeblattkreuz.

Origin/meaning

The oldest seal of the city is known since 1263 and already shows the cross. All later seals also show the cross, in (since 1687) or without a shield. The meaning of the cross, however, is not known. It has been speculated that the cross is the symbol of the local church, devoted to the Holy Cross.

The colours of the arms are derived from the colours of the State of Strassburg (Strasbourg), to which the city belonged until 1803.

The arms were officially registered in 1906, and did not change after the addition of Ulm and Erbach.
