Kirchheim beneath Teck City Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a forked cross Argent, chief Or charged with an antler Sable in fess.
The settlement had been founded by the Dukes of Teck and gained city rights in 1260. The first seal from 1300 displayed in a shield parted per pale the forked cross and the lozenges of the Teck family. The city had been a dominion of the Habsburg kin from 1303 until 1325. The seal from 1306 thus displayed the cross besides the Austrian Arms (Gules a fess Argent). Afterwards the city became a dominion of Württemberg. Thus all local seals since the end of the 14th century displayed the current pattern. The cross had been first the metal fitting of a shield. It is perhaps based on the personal arms of Conrad Hopfrebe from 1277. The tinctures of the current arms were fixed in 1535.
