Bad Teinach-Zavelstein Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess enhanced; above Or three attires Sable in fess, ordered per pale; beneath chequered of Gules and Or, ordered 4 x 3.
The city was established on 1 january 1975 by a merger of Bad Teinach, the city of Zavelstein and four minor municipalities. All entities had belonged to the Lordship of Zavelstein, which became a possession of the Counts of Württemberg before 1311. Zavelstein proper, called "Städtlein" (= small city) in the 15th century or simply city, first in 1342, displayed a chessboard (local language: Zabel) in its arms since then. The board is canting. The existence is proven by the oldest city seal with prints since 1468. The number of squares and the tinctures had been different in the past. Otto Hupp (1925) displayed the squares as red and silve.r Finally the arms contained 16 squares, alternating of red and yellow. Antetype of the current arms is a pennant from 1535, displaying the attires of Württemberg above and a chessboard of Sable and Argent with eight squares beneath, and having an additional red tail (German: Schwenkel).
