 Hettingen ~Coat of Arms


Origin & Meaning
Hettingen was first mentioned as a city in 1407 and the oldest seal dates from the same time. The seal already showed the above left arms. These arms showed the lion of the Counts of Gammertingen, who founded the town in the 12th century. Hettingen later became a possession of the Counts of Veringen. The deer antler is derived from the arms of the Counts of Veringen . The first coloured image is known since 1535, but the colours have been changed several times since. The present colours have been used since the middle of the 19th century and have been officially described in 1952.
