Ofterschwang Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess of Gules and Argent, an alpine rose with petals on top of a triplemount, both in counterchanged tinctures, chief Or three diamonds Gules.
Mount and rose are representing the fields of alpine roses on the slopes of Rangiswangerhorn, Sigiswangerhorn and Ofterschwangerhorn. The diamonds are taken from the arms of the Counts of Königsegg-Rothenfels, local rulers for centuries. The tinctures red and white are those of the Bishopric of Augsburg, which owned large estates in the village.
