In white, a red lion's head turned to the right.
The emblem commemorates Bishop Eberhard von Waldburg and his successor Rudolf von Habsburg-Laufenburg. The lion's head is for this Habsburg-Laufenburger, the colours are those of the diocese of Constance.
On 1 January 1995 Wäldi merged with Engwilen, Lipperswil and Sonterswil (see below) to the mew commune of Wäldi. The old emblem of Wäldi was adopted for the new commune.


Engwilen

In red a white packhorse walking on a white arc below three white lime leaves pointing downwards.
In Engwilen there were three free families with special legal status. The Bishop of Constance granted them protection, for which the Engwilers had to provide him with a packhorse on every trip to Rome. The lime leaves refer to these three families.
