Möttingen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Vairy of Or and Gules, beneath Argent parted by a cross patty Sable.
In 1323 the Counts of Oettingen sold their possessions in Möttingen together with the right of patronage over the local parish church to the Teutonic Order. They kept the sovereignty and the high level cognisance. The vair is taken from the alternating arms of the counts, the cross is that one of the order.

The arms were approved on 13 August 1958 by Minister of Interior of Bayern. The banner was never approved officially.
