Schwendi Coat of Arms

Shield quartered of Azure and Argent, over all a lozenge Argent in bend sinister.
The current arms were displayed in local seal until 1925, and had then been replaced by the family arms of the Barons of Schwendi (Azure a fess Or, accompanied in base and chief by lozenges Argent). The former arms were restored in 1965.
