Mönchweiler Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, issuant from base a monk in habit Sable; chief Or charged with an attire Azure in fess.
The first known seal from 1811 already displayed the current pattern with the canting monk and an attire, representing Wüürttemberg. As Mönchweiler became a possession of Baden in 1810, the seal obviously had been in use before. In the 2nd half of the 19th century the municipality used a colour stamp, displaying a lion, probably from the 1807 version of the Badenian arms. In 1919 the local council decided, to re-establish the former arms.

The arms were adopted by the municipality on 15 April 1922. The banner was approved on 5 July 1984 by the county administration, published in GABl 402/1985.
