Origin/meaning

Rosenfeld was probably founded around 1255 by the Counts of Teck, and became a possession of Württemberg in 1317. The arms are canting, showing a rose. All known seals, the first from 1372, show a rose either alone or in a shield. The rose initially sometimes had 5 sometimes 6 leaves. The present rose, with 5 leaves, has not changed since the late 16th century. The colours are known since 1535.

The arms were not changed after the merger with other municipalities and re-granted on May 11, 1976.
