Adelberg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess; above Or a sinister facing boar salient Sable, armed Argent and tongued Gules; beneath Sable a dog salient Or, tongued Gules.
Until 1851 the name of the municipality had been Hundsholz (sth. like "dog's wood") and then renamed itself, taking the name of a former Premonstratensian Monastery (1178 - 1535). Before 1527 the local secret seal just displayed an "A" for the local rulers, the monks of Adelberg. From 1558 until the 18th century local court seals displayed a canting ensemble, a dog between two trees, representing a wood, on a triplemount. The monastery since the late 18th century had its own court seal displaying the boar. Both seals were united in a coat of arms with two shields in 1930. The current composition, displaying the colours of Baden-Württemberg, black and yellow, was introduced in use since 1946.
