Split yellow, three (1,2) six-pointed red stars above a blue ploughshare, and black a red-armed and tongued, yellow-crowned white lion.
The ploughshare comes from the coat of arms of the local municipality of Wigoltingen, the three stars indicate that the sub-community Bonau belonged to three jurisdictions. The lion comes from the coat of arms of the Barons of Altenklingen.
In 1995 Wigoltingen merged with Bonau, Engwang and Illhart to the new commune of Wigoltingen. Its old emblem, the blue ploughshare on yellow, became part of the new emblem.

The black lion in white refers to the lordship of Altenklingen. Red and white are the colours of Reichenau Abbey. The three stars stand for the two villages Bonau and Häusern, as well as for the Community of the farms Gerau, Gilhof, Schürle and Tangwang.
