Neresheim Coat of Arms

Shield verry of Or and Gules, in centre an inescutcheon Azure, over all a saltire bastonny Argent.
Neresheim became a city in the 14th century. It had been a dominion of the namesake Benedictine Abbey, afterwards of the Counts, later Princes of Oettingen(-Wallenstein), who had been reeves of the abbey before. A proper seal is first mentioned in 1581, prints are known since 1665. It already displayed the Oettingen family arms, i.e. vair, inescutcheon and saltire, topped by a crozier and afterwards by a Prince's coronet since 1771, when the Oettingen kin gained complete control. Neresheim became a dominion of Württemberg in 1810. Since 1848 the seals displayed the arms of Württemberg. The current pattern was fixed in 1968.
