Heubach Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, two harvester's hooks Or in saltire, chief Or, charged with an attire Sable in fess.
The first town seal from around 1520 only displayed the crossed hooks. The market town became a dominion of Württemberg in 1350. The attire appeared first in seals from the 17th century, not being on a chief. Arms, e.g. displayed by Siebmacher (1605) displayed the hooks Argent, "having the colour of iron", i.e. probably a shade of grey. The hooks (German: Heuhaken) either allude to the city's name or to the Hacken kin of Wöllstein, who had the local fiefdom until 1345.
