Reichenbach Municipal Coat of Arms

In a red shield is a silver (= white) plough share. The shield has a golden (= yellow) chief superimposed by a black antler.
The arms are a combination of the antler of Württemberg and a local village symbol, the plough share. It is known as a village symbol since 1588. It is also known from boundary stones since 1685. The antler was added early in the 20th century. The colours and the current pattern were fixed about 1930.

The banner was approved on 9 November 1966 by Minister of Interior of Baden-Württemberg, published in GABl 129/1967.
