Ringsheim Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, a heraldic rose Gules, seeded Or, barbed Vert and surrounded by an annulet Azure.
The village belonged to the Archbishopric of Straßburg until 1803 and used a punning annulet (German: Ring) as local symbol, which was already known from boundary stones since 1637 and the oldest village seal from 1651, which displayed the rose in an oval.

Banner and arms were never approved officially. Tinctures and pattern of the arms were suggested in 1899 by General State Archive of Baden. They are since 1900 in use without approval.
