Haldenwang Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Sable a rosette Or, at sinister chequered of Argent and Gules.
The golden rosette is taken fromt he arms of Ottobeuren Abbey, as there had been relationships between monastery and municipality since the 9th century. The local church had been under patronage of Ottobeuren and the parish was incorporated in 1034. The chequered quarter is taken from the arms of the Lords of Wagegg, first mentioned around 1170. They had been commissionaires of the Princely Abbey of Kempten. The Lordship of Wagegg had been one of the most important parts of the dominions of the abbey. The lords died out in 1374, finally in 1581 after frequent changes the municipality was under direct rule of the abbey.
