Weidenberg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter quartered of Argent and Sable, at sinister Argent a willow Vert on a mount Vert.
The oldest seal from the late 16th century displayed the canting willow (German: Weide) with its trunk charged with an inescutcheon displaying the arms of the Künsberg kin. Other town seals from the 17th and 18th century and an image from 1767 already displayed the current pattern. The dexter half displays the family arms of the Zollern kin. Between 1819 and 1836 the dexter half was quartered in the Bavarian tinctures blue and white. The sinister half is canting, displaying a willow and a mount (German: Berg).
