Wappen von Steinheim an der Murr

Official blazon

(de) In Rot unter dem reichsapfelähnlichen goldenen Fleckenzeichen sechs aufeinandergeschichtete Silberne Steine (1:2:3).

Origin/meaning

Even though Steinheim became a city only in 1955, it had already a seal in 1558. The seal showed a pile of tones (canting, Stein is stone), from which is growing a plant. A later seal, dating from 1690 shows the same stones, but now with a letter S. The orb as in the present arms, first appears in the early 19th century. The origin or meaning, however, is not clear. The arms have not changed since.


Literature : Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
