The Coat of Arms of Knittlingen

Heraldic coat of arms description: A gold abbot staff in silver, tied with two diagonally crossed black cuttings (the right to use this coat of arms was granted on August 27,1976 by the district office in Enzkreis)

Historical background: Knittlingen belonged to the rule of the Maulbronn monastery until 1840. The Maulbronn abbot is therefore in the coat of arms. Knittlingen was also referred to in the sources as cnuttelingen, cundelingen. The two crossed clubs (Knittel) symbolize knutel, knuttel (weapon, peasant weapon, shepherd's stick, thrashing.)
