Fellbach Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a red shield are three silver wolf traps ordered per pale.
Meaning:
The wolf traps are taken from the arms of the Velbach family, a family of the local gentry. The current arms replaced a shield divided per pale and displaying a blue bunch of grapes on the dexter side and an initial "F" on the sinister side. Before the initial alone formed the coat of arms. Its existence within a shield could be proven on seals since the 17th century.

The colours white and red were introduced in 1934.
