Origin/meaning

The present arms first appear on the seals in 1604. The oldest colour image dates from 1609. Prior to 1604 all seals showed the arms of Baden, as the town belonged to Baden until 1603, when Bad Liebenzell was acquired by Württemberg. The arms have not changed since.

The deer antler in the chief of the arms is derived from the arms of Württemberg. The person in the bath in the lower half probably symbolises St. Lioba, the local patron saint, who later changed into a male figure.
