Rottweil Coat of Arms

Shield Or; an eagle Sable, armed and tongued Gules and bearing a Latin cross Or upon his chest.
Meaning:
Rottweil had been a royal location very early and was denoted as a city in 1230 by Emperor Friedrich II of the Staufen kin. The city was self administrated as a Free Imperial City and held the ius gladii, literally the" justice of the sword" - the supreme level of justice, since 1359. In 1802 the city became a part of Württemberg. The oldest seal from the early 13th century and all later seals display the (one-headed) imperial eagle. The small Latin cross (Balkenhochkreuz), probably added to distinguish the arms from similar arms and coins, appeared first in the 16th century. The cross, also denoted as "cross of passion" (of Christ), is the symbol of the main church, dedicated to the Holy Cross. Black - yellow and also red - white had been the colours of imperial cities.

The first banner was granted to the city by Pope Julius II the Terrible (1503 - 1513) as a gratitude for military assistance by the city. Julius II also introduced the Swiss guards in 1506 and started the construction of St.Peter in Rome.
