Neukirch Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, a gonfanon Gules, in base a sword and a crozier in saltire, both Gules.
The gonfanon is taken from the arms of the Palatine Counts of Tübingen. Sword and crozier are probably alluding to the Counts of Montfort-Tettnang, former rulers of the Neukirch district (Amt) , to which belonged also the monasteries of Weißenau and Weingarten.

Banner and arms were approved by Minister of Interior of Baden-Württemberg on 14 February 1958, published in GABl 109/1958.
