Wappen von Frohnstetten/Arms (crest) of Frohnstetten
Official blazon
German In geteiltem Schild oben in Silber ein durchgehendes rotes Kreuz, unten in Rot eine silberne Muschel.
English blazon wanted


The arms were officially granted on February 14, 1958.

Frohnstetten never had its own arms and the local seal only showed the name of the village. In 1949 the State Archives of Württemberg proposed a bull's head as arms for the village. The head was the symbol for St. Silvester, the local patron saint. The local council, however, rejected the symbol.

Th State Archives then proposed the above arms, with another symbol of St. Silvester, the scallop. In the upper half a cross was added. The cross refers to the Buchau convent, to which the village belonged from at least the 14th century until 1803.
