In blue, a yellow lion walking upright.
The coat of arms goes back to the barons of Bürglen.
In yellow, a blue bear walking across a blue bridge.
The bear stands for the ties to the monastery of St. Gall, the bridge for the location on the Thur and the connections to the other side of the river.
Divided by red and white, topped with a yellow-crowned lion in alternate colours.
Leimbach belonged to various lordships. The split shield refers to this division. The colours are those of the reign of the cathedral chapter of Constance, and the lion comes from the emblem of the Lords of Bürglen and the Lords of Altenklingen.
In yellow between two blue flanks a red rampant lion.
The emblem refers to the former ownership: The blue flanks together with the yellow indicate the lordship of Bürglen, the red lion in yellow indicates the Thurgau bailiwick.
