SCHÖNAICH

State : Baden-Württemberg
District (Kreis) : Böblingen

Origin/meaning:

The arms were adopted in 1951. The arms show a canting oak (Eiche) tree. The oldest use of an oak leaf as symbol for the municipality dates from 1681. In 1903 the municipality adopted a seal showing an oak tree. Since 1919 the tree was placed in a red shield. This colour combination is not allowed in heraldry and in 1951 the shield became golden and the tree was placed on a green base.

Literature : Bardua, 1987
