It is a white - blue vertical bicolour. The coat of arms is shifted to the top.
The attire reminds on the fact that the village belonged to Old-Württemberg. The plough share is symbolizing the rural environment and agriculture as main business line. Some say, it could be found on the municipality's boundary stones.
