Öllingen Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a lion rampant Argent, holding a Latin cross patty Argent in his forepaws.
The lion is taken from the arms of the Counts of Dillingen. In 1143 a big farm and one quarter of the local church were bestowed on the monastery of Anhausen upon Brenz. Thus the lion bears a cross. The cross is also alluding to the Collegiate of Wiesensteig, which gained the patronage over the local church by Emperor Ludwig the Bavarian in 1330.
