Sipplingen Municipal Coat of Arms

In a silver (= white) shield is a red, rampant lion. Upon his breast is a right hand, placed sinister bendy, in natural colour. He is cutting bunches of grapes with a blue vinegrower's knife, while his other hand is clasping the pole of a vine plant in natural colours with three bunches of grapes.
The arms display the red lion of the Habsburg kin, connected with the symbols of viticulture. The hand is considered as a symbol of the loyalty to Habsburg of the inhabitants.
