Dauchingen Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a sinister facing (double-queued) lion rampant Or, holding a plough share Argent in his forepaws.
Dauchingen belonged to the Free Imperial City of Rottweil until 1803, to Württemberg until 1810 and afterwards to Baden. Until the middle of the 19th century the local reeve used a seal, displaying the arms of Baden (version 1807): parted per fess, above the Badenian bend, beneath a lion. Later the municipality used colour stamps, displaying a sinister facing lion holding an intial "D" in his forepaws. The lion is considered to be the so called Zähringen lion from the 1807 arms. 1902 the General State Archive proposed the current pattern, which was however refused by the municipality, but nevertheless used in seals since 1945. As the municipality needed clarification, it applied for the arms.
