Oberstenfeld Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a silver shield with a dark green base is a knight in silver (= white) armour. On top of his helmet are green plumes. The knight is riding a black horse forcene having red and golden bridles.
The arms are canting. The name of the village literally means "colonel's field". The colonel is the knight, the field is the green base. The pattern is already known from a seal dated 1681. The tinctures are based on a suggestion from 1918 made by Archivdirektion Stuttgart.

Enquiries of the municipality have proven that the flag was already in use before the 1 April 1935.
