Vogt Municipal Coat of Arms

Shield Sable, a horse forcene Or bridled Gules, on his back a bearded rider Or with coat and hat Or and jackboots Gules.
After WW2 the municipality first used a coloured stamp, displaying Jesus in the posture of the Good Shepherd. Since 1949 the local council applied for a coat of arms. The rider is a reeve (German: Vogt) and was considered to be canting. He is also alluding to the fact that the village was ruled by the Austrian Reeves of Schwaben in the past.
