Wertingen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale of Gules and Argent, a church Argent with two towers, port and windows Sable and roof and spires Azure, base lozengy of Argent and Azure.
The church is a representation of the Augustine Weihenberg Nunnery, which was already depicted on the oldest seal prints from 1297 and had basically never changed since then, neither on seals nor on coloured images. The tinctures however were not known and thus painted in different ways. In 1881 the partition per pale in the current tinctures and the lozengy base were added. Also the shape of the towers was changed. Red and white are the tinctures of the Bishopric of Augsburg, the lozengy shield is alluding to the Wittelsbach kin.

The colours of the banner are traditional. The banner was granted on 12 April 1881 by King Ludwig II of Bayern.
