Betzenweiler Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above black an antler Or in fess, beneath Or a throughout cross patty Gules.
Betzenweiler had been already a fiefdom of Württemberg before 1392. The antler and the counterchanged colours of Württemberg in the upper half are alluding to this. The "cross of Adelind" displays the arms of the former Buchau Church Collegiate, which owned the village from 1510 until 1802, when the collegiate had been dissolved.
