    Lauda-Königshofen Coat of Arms

    In a celestial blue shield is a square flag quarterly divided into silver (= white) and red. The flag has to embattled edges and is stuck upon a golden (= yellow) jousting lance. The flag is topped by an impending golden (= yellow) coronet.
    Meaning:
    The elements of the shield are taken from the flags of the former cities of Lauda (flag on lance) and Königshofen (coronet). The flag is those of the city and bishopric of Würzburg. The bishops had been the former rulers for centuries in Lauda. The coronet is a reduction of the crowned head in the flag of Königshofen.

    Königshofen Municipal Coat of Arms

    The shield is divided per fess into silver (= white) over red. Above is a king's head crowned by a golden (= yellow) coronet. Below is a silver (= white) wheel having six spokes.

    Oberlauda Municipal Coat of Arms

    In a red shield are three silver (= white) annulets ordered 2:1.
    Meaning: Before 1803 Oberlauda was part of the Lordship of Lauda, from 1803 to 1806 of the Principality of Leiningen and since 1806 of the Grand Duchy of Baden. Oberlauda since 1635 was connected with the nearby village of Heckfeld. Both had a common mayor and a common court. Since 1685 Oberlauda and Heckfeld were two independent municipalities. A seal displaying the three annulets was first used on 5 July 1744. According to a protocol of the city council of Lauda from 1777, the annulets had been just three initials "O" symbolizing the municipality. They morphed into annulets in 1811, probably by an error of the seal-engraver.
    Source: H.G.Zier and J.F. Kastner "Wappenbuch des Landkreises Tauberbischofsheim"; Karlsruhe 1967; pp.157-158

    The coat of arms was adopted by the municipal council on 28 March 1902.
