|Heraldry of the World (Wappen der Welt)|
Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
Markdorf received city rights around 1250 from the Lords of Markdorf. The city also adopted the arms of the family, and the arms appeared already on the seal of the city from 1350. Later images all showed the same symbol, the number of blades, however, has changed often during the centuries. The colours are known since the 17th century.
The arms by Hupp in the Kaffee Hag albums +/- 1925
Literature : Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
