Rottenacker Coat of Arms

Shield Or a rake Gules in bend, issuant from base a crenated mount Gules.
The arms are based on a seal of the local reeves from 1803. Also a seal of the village mayor from 1820 displayed a rake and a branch on top of the arms of Württemberg. The red crenated mount is considered to be a field or acre (German: Acker) and thus canting. Rake and branch had been local symbols.

The banner is used unofficially. The arms are in use since 1930.
