Nennslingen Coat of Arms

Shield parted by an embattled wall Or masoned Sable, water of Azure and Argent pouring down from its open port; in chief parted per pale, at dexter Sable a fess Argent, at sinister parted per fess of Sable and Argent.
The village gained the rights of a market town in 1532, granted by Emperor Karl V. By request of Konrad Ehenheim and the Schenk of Geyern Brothers a coat of arms was granted in 1582. The arms of the former are in dexter chief, those of the latter in sinister chief. The wall, described as earth-coloured in the grant and the water are a representation of the Ursprung Fountain (meaning: origin fountain), from which the little river Anlauter is originated. The colour of the wall was painted as red by Otto Hupp (1925) and Klemens Stadler (1968).

The arms were granted on 27 August 1582 by Emperor Rudolf II, confirmed on 10 October 1844 by King Ludwig I of Bayern. The banner was approved and the arms re-confirmed on 6 June 1983 by district governor (Regierungspräsident) of Mittelfranken.
