Horb Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess into silver (= white) over red.
Meaning:
Horb gained city rights in the 13th century from the Palatine Counts of Tübingen, former rulers of the area. In 1305 the city became a possession of the Counts of Hohenberg, in 1381 of Austria and in 1806 of Württemberg. Since 1308 the divided shield of silver and red appears on the seals, displaying the colours of Hohenberg.
