Hilzingen Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, a trefoil Vert, issuant from a triplemount Gules, issuant from base.
Hilzingen belonged to Petershausen Abbey as an Austrian fiefdom since 1660 and became a possession of Baden together with the abbey in 1803. A print of the first municipal seal from 1811 already displayed a trefoil, but issuant from a flower bed. The trefoil also appeared in coloured municipal stamps through the 19th century. In 1902 the current pattern was fixed.

The arms were adopted in 1902 by the municipality. The banner was approved on 25 June 1962 by Minister of Interior of Baden-Württemberg, published in GABl 336/1962.
