Walldürn was mentioned as a city in the late 13th century. In 1294 the city was acquired by the archbishops of Mainz. The oldest seal dates from around 1400 and shows the castle of the Lords of Dürn between two trees, making the arms canting (Wald=forest). The small shield is the arms of the State of Mainz. The composition has not changed since, but the colours differed widely. The present colours were officially determined in 1960.
