The city was founded around 1250 and received market rights in 1447. The oldest known seal dates from around 1350 and show already the present composition, only with pine cones in the tree. The city was the center of the clearings in the Black Forest mountains, which may explain the symbols. In the 19th century the axe was replaced by two crossed axes in front of the trunk. The arms were officially granted in 1908, when the cones were also removed.
