Aulendorf City Coat of Arms

Shield Or a winged wheel Sable pointing to sinister, chief barry sinister bendy of Gules and Or (three rows).
The village had been a possession of the Lords of Königsegg since 1381. In 1629 they were elevated to counts under direct imperial rule (German: Reichsgrafen). Aulendorf became the ancestral seat of the meanwhile Counts of Königsegg in the 17th century and gained the rights of a market town in 1682. The counts had residual rights of administration and jurisdiction in the city until 1848. Aulendorf gained city rights in 1950 and later also the title of a spa. The chief displays lozenges from the family arms of the counts. The wheel is symbolising the railway and the influence of a settlement of railwaymen for the development of the city.
