Schluchsee Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a stag's head caboshed Argent, in chief an impending initial "S".
Schluchsee Lake with neighbouring territories was donated to Sankt Blasien Monastery in the 11th century. The village was incorporated into the County of Bonndorf, a possession of the monastery, in 1699. The county was acquired by Baden in 1806. Local seals had been in use since 1830, only depicting the municipality's name. The head is a modification of the arms of Sankt Blasien. The "S" is a distinguishing mark.

The arms were adopted in 1897 by the municipality. The banner was approved on 9 September 1975, published in GABl 131/1976.
