Ehingen Coat of Arms

Shield Argent a unicorn forcene Azure,superimposed by a bendlet sinister Or.
The unicorn is taken from the arms of the Lords of Ehingen, the most important manorial lords in the 13th and 14th century and vassals of the Wittelsbach kin. The tinctures white and blue are those of the Wittelsbach kin. The meaning of the bendlet is not mentioned and is perhaps referring to Benediktbeuren Abbey, having the local rights of patronage.

The arms were approved on 23 July 1962 by Minister of Interior of Bayern. The banner in Bavarian colours white and blue had never been approved officially.
