Fellheim Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a saint proper with starry nimbus Or, at sinister Argent a willow Vert on top of a mount issuant of the same.
The municipal arms had been among the first arms approved after the end of WW2. The tinctures red and white are those of the Reichlin kin from Meidegg, local rulers between 1555 and 1806. The family built the local castle and owned it until 1920. The saint is John of Nepomuk, patron saint of the local parish church. The willow (local language: Felwe) is a canting element.

The banner was approved on 17 April 1991 by district governor (Regierungspräsident) of Schwaben. The arms were approved on 15 April 1948 by Minister of Interior of Bayern.
