Weinstadt Coat of Arms

In the centre of the black shield is a golden (= yellow) bunch of grapes. The shield has a golden (= yellow) chief, superimposed by a black attire.
On 1 January 1975 the municipalities of Beutelsbach, Endersbach, Großheppach and Schnait merged and formed the municipality of Weinstadt, which gained the title of a city on 9 March 1976. Before on 1 January 1973 the municipality of Strümpfelbach had been incorporated into Endersbach. The bunch of grapes is a canting element, alluding to the fact that viticulture had been the main business line in all the five former municipalities. The attire and the colours of Württemberg - yellow and black - are symbolizing, that the area belonged to Old-Württemberg, which had one of its focal points in Beutelsbach. Furthermore the attire had been already an element within the arms of three of the former municipalities.
