Röckingen Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, an angel with fair hair, winged Or and dressed Vert, supporting an inescutcheon in base, parted per pale of Argent and Sable, over all a rye sheaf Or on the central peak of a triplemount issuant Vert.
The proper arms had been the inescutcheon. The angel had been a mere supporter, whose meaning is unknown. A local seal from the 19th century displayed the complete arms with supporter and an additional date "1618". In 1819 the angel was abolished. Otto Hupp (1925) displayed the shield as parted per fess, beneath Gules, above Argent Sable and parted per pale with the sheaf exceeding the red field, which was in use at least until 1968. The ear of rye (German: Roggen) is a canting element. The tinctures black and white are those of the Zollern kin.

The current arms were granted in 1618 by Margrave Joachim Ernst of Brandenburg-Ansbach. The version without supporter was confirmed in 1857 by King Maximilian II of Bayern.
