Wappen von Bad Salzungen (kreis)

Official blazon

(de)

Origin/meaning

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).
