The three diamonds are derived from the arms of the Knights of Gebhardshain, who had some possessions in Nauroth already around 1400. The hawthorn branch is taken from the arms of the Cistercian convent in Mareinstatt, which also had possessions in the municipality. Nauroth was first mentioned in a document of the convent in 1222. The upper part of the arms shows a sun, taken from a decoration in a house in Nauroth from 1600.
