Siegel von Hütten (Rickenbach)

The municipal stamp shown in 1892

In 1911 the State Archives proposed new arms for the municipality with a small hut, a canting symbol. The municipality refused the proposal and used only a seal and no arms.
In 1964 the council applied for arms and the above arms were designed. The basilisk on the left half of the arms is derived from the arms of the State of <a href=zwi/kanton/basell|Basel]], as the village was ruled by the State of Basel from 1274 until the Reformation.
