Coat of Arms

Shield Or, a double-headed eagle Sable, armed and tongued Gules, upon his breast an inescutcheon Argent, charged with a rose Gules, barbed and seeded Vert, having nine petals.
Meaning:
The city was established in 1971 by a merger of two cities and seven municipalities. The name is alluding to the location in the valley of the Kraichbach, a creek. In the end of the 18th century the sovereignty was divided between Baden, Württemberg, the Bishopric of Speyer and Imperial knightages. The double-headed eagle is referring to the Kraichgau Knights Canton. The rose is reminding on the Counts of Eberstein, who owned estates and privileges in seven of the nowadays boroughs, and who founded Gochsheim city. The number of petals is alluding to the nine former independent entities.

Unteröwisheim Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a sinister facing hare's head Or, superimposing an abbot's crozier of the same in bend sinister.
Meaning:
The village had been a possession of the Counts of Eberstein. In the 13th century it was acquired by the Margraves of Baden, who sold their rights in 1346 to the Maulbronn Abbey, which became the local ruler from 1411 until 1505 completely and afterwards until 1558 partially. The village gained city rights probably in the middle of the 18th century. The oldest court seal from the late 14th century with prints since 1421 displayed only the crozier, alluding to the abbey. The 2nd seal from the end of the 15th century already displayed the current pattern. The origin of the hare is unknown. The tinctures were fixed in 1898 as displayed 1925 by Otto Hupp. The head had been red and the crozier golden (=yellow) in a silver (=white) shield. The current tinctures were introduced in 1960 due to heraldic rules.
