Geisingen City Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a sinister facing lion rampant Gules, at sinister Or an eagle Gules, armed and tongued Azure.
The colours are those appearing on the city's coat of arms. Geisingen gained city rights in 1310. Since 1324 there are prints of city seals, nearly displaying the current pattern but using two shields. The lion displays the arms of the Barons of Geisingen. They renamed themselves in the 12th century to Barons of Wartenberg, which had been their castle. They established a market in Geisingen in the 13th century. The eagle displays the arms of the Counts of Fürstenberg, local rulers after 1318. They city belonged to the Fürstenbergian Landgraviate of Baar until 1806 and became a dominion of Baden afterwards. Until the 19th century the arms of the city had a bordure undy from the Fürstenberg family arms.
