Divided by blue with white striding lion and white-red chess.
The flag/coat of arms comes from the former community of Mettendorf which was merged into Hüttlingen in 1999. Mettendorf was once a fief of the Kyburgers and the Habsburg-Neukyburgers, later it belonged to Wellenberg and thus indirectly to the city of Zurich. The coat of arms shows the Habsburg lion striding over the chess of the Lords of Glattbrugg. The lion wears the colours of Zurich, the chess the colours of Reichenau.
In yellow a black cross reaching to the edges.
The cross commemorates the Reichenau Abbey and the Bishopric of Constance, the colours commemorate the oldest landowner, the Abbey of St. Gallen.
Since 1 January 1999 Eschikofen is part of Hüttlingen.
In red a yellow ox head with black horns and black nose ring.
Refers to the castle of the Lords of Ochsenhard (canting: Ochse = ox), which stood near the village.
Since 1 January 1999 Harenwilen is part of Hüttlingen.
