Wappen von Gondelsheim/Arms (crest) of Gondelsheim
Official blazon
German In Rot auf grünem Schildfuß eine goldene Garbe.
English blazon wanted


Gondelsheim had its own local council already in 1387, but there was no council seal or arms. The village often changed hands; it belonged to many different families until 1761, when it became a part of Baden. Since 1761 the local council used the arms of Baden on its seal. This lasted until 1812 when the council used a seal with a garb as its arms. The garb is probably taken as a symbol of the agriculture, the main source of income in the village. The arms were granted in 1910 and were based on this seal.
