Schömberg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess of Argent over Gules, in chief charged with an attire Sable in fess.
On 1 February 1973 Schömberg and Schörzingen merged. The new entity kept the name Schömberg. Both parts had been dominions of the Counts of Hohenberg until 1805. It is presumed that the Zollern kin had founded Schömberg, which had been a dominion of the Counts of Hohenberg since 1268 and had gained city rights in 1269. The partition of white over red, the Hohenberg colours, was also in the former arms, proven by all local seal prints since 1278 until the 17th century. Afterwards the pattern was replaced by the arms of Austria (Gules a fess Argent), as it was an Austrian dominion since 1368. The attire was added in 1806, when the former city swapped to Württemberg. It is also a distinguishing mark in comparison with the Hombergian cities of Haigerloch, Horb upon Neckar and Rottenburg upon Neckar.
