Or, three antlers in pale Sable
Santiago Dotor, 8 May 2001

Although this design is very like that of the royal standards of Württemberg (Germany), there is nothing specified in this sense in Mühlemann (1991). The book speaks about "die Grafen von Nellenburg", and maybe there is a connection here but it is far above the level of my knowledge.

The original arms of Württemberg are three deer antlers. They are first mentioned in 1228 as the arms of count Konrad and his father Hartmann. The arms were derived from older arms of the counts of Nellenburg, that showed three blue antlers. Both the counts of Nellenburg and of Württemberg were related to the counts of Veringen. Hartmann of Wirtinsberc (Württemberg) was married to a Countess of Veringen.
