In red, a white cross reaching to the edges, two white crowns at the top.
The coat of arms of Langrickenbach adopts the coat of arms of the cathedral chapter of Constance in reversed colours and also shows two crowns as a sign that Emperor Barbarossa already confirmed in 1155 that the church of Langrickenbach belonged to the cathedral chapter of Constance.
Since 1 January 1998 Langrickenbach has formed a new commune with Dünnershaus, Herrenhof, Schönenbaumgarten and Zuben (see below).

In red, sprinkled with 13 yellow roses, rampant left-turned yellow lion.
The lion shows that Dünnershaus stood as high court directly under the bailiff. The roses symbolize the 13 former farms of the municipality.

In black a yellow bear walking rampant left-turned, holding a white crown in its paws.
The Herrenhof ("manor of the lords") was the manor of the monastery of St. Gall. Therefore, the monastic coat of arms, the bear of Saint Gallus, is depicted in reversed colours. The crown says that the manor was originally a royal estate.
