Schramberg Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a black shield is a golden (= yellow), rampant griffin, armed and tongued red and holding a silver (= white) sword in his right fore paw.
Schramberg grew as a village around the local castle, probably in the 12th century, as capital of a lordship, ruled by the Zähringen kin, which later became a part of Hither Austria and in 1805 of Württemberg. The griffin was taken from the arms of the Counts of Bissingen-Nippenburg, who were vassals of the Habsburg kin in the second half of the 17th century. The first use of the griffin in the arms of the town happened in the 19th century, but the griffin stood on a triple mount. In 1910 the mountain disappeared, in 1926 the griffin was superimposing a cog wheel as a symbol for the local manufacturing of clocks. Schramberg gained the rights of a market-town in 1547 and of a city in 1867.
