Wiesensteig Coat of Arms

It is a white-red vertical bicolour. The coat of arms is shifted to the top.
Meaning:
Wiesensteig had been the seat of the Counts of Helfenstein and was considered to be a city since the middle of the 14th century. Prints of the oldest seal existed since 1482. They displayed an elephant, issuant from a quadruple mount. All the following seals kept this pattern, although the owners of Wiesensteig changed frequently: 1627 condominion of Bavaria and Fürstenberg, 1752 dominion of Bavaria alone, 1806 dominion of Württemberg. Only the shape of the mount changed. Since the 19th century the mount was a quintuplemount, which was fixed in 1930. The current tinctures are based on the earliest coloured image from 1560. The elephant was also used as a local symbol on boundary stones.

The banner was approved on 4 February 1959 by Minister of Interior of Baden-Württemberg, published in GABl 127/1959. Prior to this the municipality had a green-red banner
