Description of coat of arms:
The golden (= yellow) shield is divided by a red bend sinister. A golden (= yellow) initial "W" is superimposing the centre of the bend.
Walheim was a possession of the Counts of Baden until 1595. The oldest seal dates from 1530 and shows the bend of Baden. The current arms, approved in 1939, display the modified arms of Baden. The bend was replaced by a bend sinister and the town's initial "W" was added.

Banner and coat of arms were approved on 19 February 1958 by minister of interior of Baden-Württemberg, published in GABl 108/1958.
