Uhingen Coat of Arms

The red shield is divided by a silver (= white) fess wavy and has a canton of the same colour.
Before 1912 the local seal displayed a goose claw, which was also used on border stones. The fess wavy is symbolizing the Fils River, that runs through the municipality. The canton is taken from the arms of the Counts of Aichelberg, who ruled the area until 1332 when it became part of Württemberg.

The coat of arms was designed and approved in 1912. The flag is in use at least since 1971.
