Königsfeld Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, two flails Argent in saltire, accompanied in chief a royal coronet Or and in base by a scallop Or.
The royal coronet here is just a punning element. The flails are taken from the arms of the Lords of Königsfeld, who had been in service of the Counts of Truhendingen. The scallop is an attribute of St. James the Elder, the local patron saint. The flails are symbolising the rural character.
