Half split and divided by an incurved apex; 1: In red, three white lozenges touching each other;
2: In white, a striding black swan with a red beak and red feet; 3: The white apex is covered with four red
tails, two each coming from the right and left foot flank, meeting at the tip.
The emblem of Lengwil consists of the emblems of the former local communities of Oberhofen and Illighausen (see below). The tails symbolize the merger of the former local communities to form the Lengwil community (This is perhaps one of very few flag designs symbolizing the act of merging itself).
Since 1 January 1998 Lengwil has formed a new commune with Illighausen and Oberhofen bei Kreuzlingen (see below) (We don't know if there was an emblem of the old Lengwil commune. We are thankful for according information).
In white a striding black swan with red beak and red feet.
Adoption of the coat of arms of the extinct Illighauser family from Constance. The colours correspond to those of the city of Constance.
In red, three white lozenges touching sideways.
The lozenges go on the coat of arms of the Lords of Königsegg, the colours to the diocese of Constance. The number of three lozenges refers to the three villages Oberhofen, Lengwil and Dettighofen (which merged with Pfyn).
