The arms were officially granted on

The arms combine the canting Saale river (blue pale) with the two battle-clubs taken from the arms of the Forstmeister von Rothenkolben-Lebenhan (foresters) and the beaver from the arms of the Knights of Bibra. The arms of the foresters originally showed three red roses besides the clubs, but these were omitted (in the new arms of Bad Bocklet one rose was added again).
