Keltern Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pall reversed; above right Argent a bunch of 13 grapes Azure, ordered 3:4:3:2:1; above left Azure a rummer Argent; beneath Sable a building Or containing a wine press Or.
The municipality was formed by a merger of Dietenhausen, Dietlingen, Ellmendingen, Niebelsbach and Weiler on 30 March 1972. Its name means "wine pressing", and thus all the charges are alluding to viticulture, which had been a common business line of all former municipalities. Especially in Dietlingen and Ellmendingen there still exist wine presses as part of the local heritage.
