Wappen von Königheim/Arms (crest) of Königheim
Official blazon
German blazon wanted
English blazon wanted


The arms were adopted in July 1901.

The oldest seal of Königheim was already mentioned in the 15th century, but only a 19th century seal remained. The seal already showed the pot. The pot also appeared on the oldest known use of the arms on a stone decoration dating from 1499.

The pot (Kanne) is canting, the name was pronounced as 'Kennichen'. Also on a stone relief on the city hall dating from 1707 the arms are used.

As no colours were known, it was decided in 1901 to use the colours of Baden.

Literature: Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
