Trossingen City Coat of Arms

Shield Or an eagle Sable with an inescutcheon Or on his breast charged with three attires Sable in fess ordered per pale.
Trossingen had been a village in the Medieval. In 1444 it was bought by the Counts of Württemberg as part of the Lordship of Lupfen. It gained the right of a market town (German: Marktflecken or simply Flecken) in 1808 and of a city in 1927. In 1745 the existence of the oldest seal and a corresponding coat of arms had been proven. The shield was parted per pale with the attires of Württemberg at dexter and the Imperial Eagle of Rottweil at sinister, the latter representing the hamlet of Thalhausen, a possession of Rottweil. A pattern similar to the current one had been introduced in 1808 or shortly after, displaying the eagle alone but with an inescutcheon with just one antler under an inscription "F.T." (i.e. Flecken Trossingen). The current pattern appeared on local seals since the 2nd half of the 19th century. At least until 1971 the eagle had been armed red as displayed by Clemens Stadler. Obviously a more modern design was preferred later on.

The arms and a plain bicolour were approved in 1904. The flag with arms may be in use without approval in order to distinguish from the flag of Tuttlingen.
