Wiesloch Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Sable, a lion rampant Or, armed and tongued Gules; at sinister paly-bendy (lozengy) of Argent and Azure.
Wiesloch had been a market town since 965 and gained city rights in the 13th century. It had been a dominion of the Palatine Counts from the Wittelsbach kin since 1230, and the control was frequently changed between different Wittelsbach branch lines. The first seal with prints since 1369 only displayed the Palatine lion. But since the early 15th century the local seals displayed lion and lozenges in a shield parted per pale. These arms actually never really changed. Between 1842 and 1866 however the seals displayed an S-shaped charge. The crown of the lion was omitted since 1898. The colours of the banner are those of the Wittelsbach kin.

The pattern of the arms was fixed in 1898. The banner had never been approved officially.
