Name and coat of arms

Sparwiesen got its name from the sparrow , popularly sparrow. This is also called “Spar” in Middle High German. The coat of arms of the formerly independent municipality is a scythe on a red background, underneath is a yellow-black diamond-shaped area.


Sparwiesen was first mentioned in a document in 1294. Already in the 14th century the place came together with Uhingen from the Counts of Aichelberg to Württemberg and was subordinate to the office in Göppingen. When the young Kingdom of Württemberg was reorganized at the beginning of the 19th century, Sparwiesen remained with the Oberamt Göppingen . In the course of the administrative reform during the Nazi era in Württemberg , Sparwiesen came to the district of Göppingen in 1938. After the end of the Second World War , the place became part of the American zone of occupation and thus belonged to the newly founded state of Württemberg-Baden , which was incorporated into the current state of Baden-Württemberg in 1952.
