Bösingen Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
On the base of a golden (= yellow) shield is a green hill with two fir trees of the same colour, which are flanking a red tower.
Meaning:
In 1363 the Counts of Hohenberg sold to the Margraves of Württemberg. Bösingen became part of the Freudenstadt County (Oberamt) in 1938 and was incorporated into the municipality of Pfalzgrafenweiler in 1975. The tower is the only remaining part of Mandelburg Castle, which had been burned down during a peasants' insurrection in 1525.

The coat of arms was adopted in 1930.
