Wappen von Bad Salzungen (kreis)

Official blazon



The arms were officially granted on June 17, 1991.

The black cross is the arms of the Abbey and State of Fulda, to which a large part of the district historically belonged. The upper left part shows the arms of Sachsen, as in later history nearly all the district was part of the duchies Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach and Sachsen-Meiningen.

The lower part shows a beech branch, which is a canting symbol for the Buchgau region in the Southern part of the district (Buche-beech).
