|The left half of the coat of arms show the colors of Austria, and the right side the colors of Baden, as both countries owned big part of the district. In the middle it shows an eagle, taken from the coat of arms of the Princes of Fürstenberg. The coat of arms was granted in 1974, and it's very similar to the coat of arms of the previous Freiburg district.|
