Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
In gespaltenem Schild vorne in Gold eine aufrechte schwarze Hirschstange, hinten in Schwarz ein schräglinks gestelltes goldenes Ruder.
Oberriexingen was mentioned as a city in the late 13th century. The oldest seal dates from the early 15th century and showed already the deer antler and the rudder. The antler is derived from the arms of Württemberg. The origin of the rudder is not quite clear. Since the late 16th century the two symbols are shown in a divided shield.
The arms by Hupp in the Kaffee Hag albums +/- 1925
Literature : Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
