Langweid Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules, at sinister Argent a bend sinister wavy Azure.
The basic tinctures are alluding to the Chapter of Augsburg, which owned estates in the villages since 1143 and increased its possessions in the following centuries by donations and purchases. The bend wavy is representing the Lech River.
