Origin/meaning

The arms were granted in 1967.

The lion is the lion of the Pfalz and indicates that the area was until 1628 for a large part ruled by the Princes of the Pfalz. The red crosier on silver symbolises the influence of the Bishops of Bamberg in the area. The other crosier symbolises the two main monasteries in the area, those of Speinshart and Michelfeld.

Literature : Stadler, K. : Deutsche Wappen - Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Angelsachsen Verlag, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
