Schechingen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess; above parted per pale of Gules and Argent, the latter charged with an arrow Gules in bend; beneath Azure.
The arms are based on the family arms of the Lords of Schechingen. The arrow as attribute of St. Sebastian, the local patron saint, was added after 1930.
