Rickenbach Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent a violin Gules in pale pointing to base, at sinister Azure, a fir Argent on a triplemount Or issuant from base.
The violin is taken from the arms of the Lords of Wieladingen, who had some fiefdoms in the Rickenbach area before 1314. The fir is a modification of the arms of the Counts of Hauenstein.
