The crosier is first used on a seal from 1827. Since 1900 it is used on the arms. Before 1827 the seals of Alpirsbach showed a tree, or a wavy bar with a tree and an arm with an arrow.

The crosier symbolises the fact that the town developed around the monastery founded in 1095. The town was made a city only in 1869.
