Neuffen Coat of Arms

Shield Or ,three hunting horns Sable ordered per pale.
Probably in 1232 the village had been fortified by the Barons of Neuffen with permission of King Heinrich VII. The first seal with prints since 1312 displayed the Imperial Eagle together with the helmet of the barons and two hunting horns. The current pattern had been in use since the 16th century in the second local seal and with tinctures in rolls of arms since the early 17th century, e.g. Siebmacher (1605). The nowadays colours black and yellow are related to Württemberg, as the original colours of the barons had been white and red.
