Lauben Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter parted per fess of Gules and Azure, at sinister Argent three leaves vert in pale.
Red and blue are the tinctures of the Princely Abbey of Kempten, to which the village historically belonged from the 13th century until 1803. The leaves are canting. "Laub" is a synonym of "Blätter" (= leaves).
