Wangen Coat of Arms

The shield is divided per pale unusually into two (!) silver (= white) fields. The dexter side displays a black demi eagle, couped per pale, armed and tongued red. The sinister side displays a blue fleur de lis. The shield has a red chief, superimposed by three silver (= white) man's heads, puffing their cheeks.
Meaning:
The town of Wangen was founded in 1217 by Emperor Friedrich II, and gained special privileges from King Rudolf I in 1286. From 1347-1802 it was an imperial city. The first arms only just displayed the fleur de lis, which had been a local symbol. The eagle, the imperial symbol, was added later. It appeared on seals around 1300 (print from 1322). The heads, with puffing cheeks (German: Wangen) are a canting element and were added on water-marks since the 17th century and on seals since the 18th century. Around 1550 the arms displayed an imperial eagle, bearing on his breast a red inescutcheon with a golden initial "W".
