Rheinstetten Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a throughout cross faceted Argent, in chief superimposed by a coronet Or bejewelled Gules and Azure.
The city was established on 1 January 1975 by the merger of Forchheim, Mörsch and Neuburgweier. The cross had been the basic element of the arms of Forchheim and Mörsch, the coronet is taken from the arms of Neuburgweier. All of them had been adopted in 1902. The cross is also alluding to the Bishopric of Speyer, to which Forchheim and Mörsch belonged politically and Neuburgweier churchly. The coronet is an attribute of St. Ursula, patron saint of Neuburgweier.
