Eutingen in Gäu Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Argent a linden branch Vert with three leaves, beneath Gules a naked right V-shaped arm Argent.
In 1971 Eutingen incorporated Göttelfingen and Rohrdorf, in 1975 also Weitingen. Silver and red had been the tinctures of the Counts of Hohenberg. Red and silver had been those of the Schütz of Eutingertal family and the Lords of Weitingen. The latter displayed the arm in the red quarter, the former the linden branch. Three of the four villages of Eutingen belonged to Hohenberg. The Schütz family had its seat in the 15th century in Eutingertal Castle, the Lords of Weitingen in Urnburg Castle above Weitingen village. They had furthermore been local rulers of Göttelfingen in the 14th century.
