Trunkelsberg Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a saddle Gules, at sinister Gules a column Or topped by a crosslet of the same.
The village belonged to the Lordship of Eisenburg. In 1455 Heinrich IV of Eisenburg sold parts of the lordship to the Sättelin family, patricians from Memmingen. The family owned the village until 1645. The saddle is a canting element from its family arms. The column marked the border of the former high level cognisance of the Free Imperial City of Memmingen and is located at the western edge of the municipality.
