Coat of arms of the municipality of Duingen
Blazon : "In silver on a green hill, a blue dove with golden armor turned left with a green palm branch in its beak, above it in the upper right corner of the shield a red heraldic rose with golden sepals and stamens."

This place forms the center of the community network. The five tips of the palm leaf can symbolically indicate the union of the five member communities.
