Origin/meaning

Karlsruhe is a relatively young city. It was founded around the castle of Count Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durlach in 1715-1718. The arms were granted to the young city in 1718. The main division of the field is the arms of Baden in opposite colours. The word Fidelitas is the Latin word for the Order of 'Der Treue', which was founded by Count Karl Wilhelm. During the18th and 19th century often the colours were identical to the arms of Baden. Not until 1895 the original colours were restored and the word Fidelitas was placed between two small black lines.
