Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a sinister facing raven Sable on the central peak of a triplemount issuant Vert, at sinister Gules a patriarchal cross Argent.
Meaning: Raven and triplemount are alluding to the Möttelin family called of Rappenstein. Its members had been citizens of Ravensburg. They acquired the the Lordship of Woringen in 1417. Castle and village were acquired by the Free Imperial City of Memmingen in 1516 and in 1547 given to the Lower Hospital (of the Holy Ghost) in Memmingen, where they remained until its secularisation in 1803. The cross is taken from the arms of the hospital.
