Steinbach received city rights from King Richard II in 1258. The oldest seal of the city is known since 1313 and shows a castle. It is not unlikely that above the castle a small shield was added; the only surviving stamp of the seal, however, does not show the upper part. The second known seal, used from 1363-1596 already shows the above arms, with the canting stone (Stein). All later seals and images show the arms with the stone. The colours were officially defined on June 9th, 1900.
