Stühlingen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess of Argent over Azure, issuant from base a bearded manikin without arms, wearing a hat Azure with plumes.
The hat in my opinion is topped by blue and white pompoms, but according to blason they are plumes. The pattern first appeared in 1496 on the oldest city seal. Tinctures and charges are taken from the arms of the Barons (later Counts) of Lupfen, who founded the city around 1262. The manikin had been the crest on the helmets of the Lupfen kin. As such it appeared also in a seal of the Landgraviate Stühlingen in 1435. The pattern was used by the city in a silver shield and with a modified manikin until the 19th century.
