Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on October 2, 1958.

The council applied for the arms in 1958 and based itself on older seals. The oldest seal dated from 1930 and showed a letter K and two apple tree branches with apples. A later seal showed the same composition. In the final arms the K was replaced by a crown, symbolising the Königs (royal) part of the name. The apples are derived from the Holzäpfel, or 'wooden apples'. The apples grown in the area do not develop fully due to the climate and are rather dry, hence the nickname of Holzäpfel.
The colours are those of the Von Enzberg family, Lords of Königsheim from the 15th century until 1806.
