Freiberg Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a celestial blue shield are three golden (= yellow) balls ordered 2:1.
The coat of arms is overtaken from the former municipality of Beihingen (Neckar) and based upon the arms of the Lords of Freyberg, former rulers and name givers of the city. Ludwig of Freyberg ruled from 1534 until 1569 over castle and the bigger part of the village of beihingen. Three golden balls, normally an attribute of St. Nicolas, nowadays are symbolizing the three settlement cores of Beihingen, Geisingen and Heutingsheim

Banner and coat of arms were approved on 3 September 1973 by minister of interior of Baden Württemberg, published in GABl 1105/1974.
