Winnenden Coat of Arms

[Winnenden CoA] flag detail, image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 25 Oct 2013

Description of coat of arms:
In the centre of a silver (= white) shield is a golden (= yellow) inescutcheon superimposed by three black attires, which are ordered per pale. The inescutcheon is surrounded by green creeper ornaments.
Meaning:
Winnenden was already a city in the 13th century and a possession of the Lords of Neuffen. In 1325 the city was acquired by Württemberg. The oldest seals from 1333 display the arms of Württemberg, the three attires. In the 16th century the creepers (German: Winden) were added as a canting element. This combination was used until the late 19th century. In the 19th century a seal appeared with dice and the three attires. First as two separate, oval shields; later, in 1903, officially combined in one shield divided per fess. The dice symbolized winning and thus were also a canting element.

Banner and coat of arms were approved on 23 January 1961 by minister of interior of Baden-Württemberg, published in GABl 249/1961.
