Riesbürg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Or, a demi-eagle issuant Sable, beneath Gules a saltire Argent.
The former Pflaumloch municipality incorporated Goldburghausen on 1 April 1972 and Unteremmingen on 1 January 1973. It also adopted its new names and arms on the same day. The demi-eagle is representing the Imperial City of Nördlingen and its hospital, which had privileges in all parts of the municipality, especially in Goldburghausen. The saltire is taken from the arms of the Princes of Oettingen, former local rulers of Pflaumloch and Utzmemmingen. Red had been the predominant tincture of all former municipalities.
