Uffenheim Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter quartered of Argent and Sable, at sinister Sable a lion rampant Or armed and tongued Gules.
The arms were painted by Otto Hupp (1925), based on old seals since 1456 and on the Roll of Arms of Siebmacher (1605). Since 1641 appeared another coat of arms as follows: white shield, a hand coming out of a cloud at dexter, offering a golden crown to a black lion. It was asserted, that would be the older caot of arms, what seems however to be wrong. The quartered shield displays the family arms of the Zollern kin. The meaning of the lion is not for sure. Probably it is the lion from the arms of the Burgraves of Nürnberg, however displayed in wrong tinctures. After 1819 the dexter half was temporarily quartered of white and red.
