Wappen von Bad Waltersdorf

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on March 20, 1967.

When the arms were granted, the municipality was still called Markt Waltersdorf in Oststeiermark. Some time later, this was changed officially to Bad Waltersdorf, as there is a thermal spa in the town.

The lion's head as in the arms appears on several pieces of Roman sculpture, which were found in the municipality. The Ancient Crown represents Early Christianity. The mitre honours Waltersdorf, as the parish is a so-called Urpfarre, a base of missionaries in the Early Middle Ages, when this part of Styria was converted to the Christian faith.
