Introduction of Waldshut-Tiengen

Waldshut was a dominion of Habsburg and became a part of Baden together with Säckingen (nowadays Bad Säckingen) and the Lordship of Hauenstein in 1805. Tiengen was seat of the Landgraviate of Klettgau since 1482. The landgraviate was incorporated into Baden in 1806. Both cities merged in 1975.

Shield Or, a man, dressed Azure, a hat Azure on his shoulder held by a tie, in right hand a baton Gules.
Meaning:
The arms display the so called blue manikin, in arms usually dressed blue. He is considered to be canting, as the name of the city means actually protection or keeping of forest. The man is a forester and known from seal prints since 1277, called by the locals the "Waldshüter Blaumännle". Count Rudolf of Habsburg, later being German King Rudolf I, restored the city in 1249. As an Austrian dominion special arms had been granted to the city in 1468, lost in 1525 and regained in 1528. They displayed the red lion of Habsburg with crown and sword. Nevertheless the arms with the forester remained in use all the time and were declared as the only city arms at the end of the 19th century and finally in 1918, when the golden background colour was confirmed. Otto Hupp (1925) displayed the forester on a silver background with black hat. An image from 1910 displayed the red lion of Habsburg without any attributes but with mural crown proper. The photo (see right image above) shows the manikin as painted on the wall of the city hall.

Tiengen Coat of Arms

[Tiengen former CoA] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 4 Nov 2019

Shield Argent, St. Mary, sitting on a throne Or on top of a crescent recumbent of the same, nimbed, crowned and dressed Or, holding Jesus Christ baby, nimbed and dressed Or, by her left arm and a ball Or by her right hand.
Meaning:
Tiengen gained city rights probably in the 12th century by the Counts of Krenkingen. It was a possession of the Bishops of Konstanz since 1262 and of the Counts of Sulz since 1482. The latter made Tiengen the capital of the Landgraviate of Klettgau. The existence of a city seal is proven since 1286, it is said to be granted in 1253. It already displayed St. Mary. The crescent was added to the city seal in the 16th century. The tinctures had been unknown, and Otto Hupp (1925) displayed St. Mary dressed white in a red field. Thus the arms were suspended between 1937 and 1946.

The arms were confirmed on 26 July 1957 by Minister of Interior of Baden-Württemberg, published in GABl 451/1957.
