Nonnenhorn Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Or a nun statant dressed in habit Sable and holding a rosary Or, at sinister Azure a cornucopia Argent filled with a bunch of grapes, an apple and a pear, all Or, and leaves Vert.
Meaning:
Nonnenhorn belonged to the Lordship of Wasserburg since the Medieval. In 1592 the Counts of Fugger of Kirchberg-Weißenhorn gained the sovereignty over the village. Their tinctures had been blue and gold. The nun is a punning element. Although in fact nuns moved from Nonnenhorn to the neighbouring Wasserburg in 926, the name probably is derived from a person named Nuno. The cornucopia is alluding to the local orcharding and viticulture. Nun (German: Nonne) und cornucopia (German: Füllhorn) together are canting.
