Fridingen Municipal Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Argent, beneath lozengy of Gules and Argent.
Fridingen was founded by the Counts of Hohenberg, who granted city rights in 1370. They sold the city in 1381 to the Dukes of Austria<7i>. Prints of city seals are known since the early 16th century. They all displayed the family arms of the counts, a shield parted per fess of white and red. 19th century seals were parted enhanced and the chief was red since then. The lozenges in the current pattern are a misinterpretation of the damascene in the Hohenberg shield but were kept as a distinguishing mark.
