Origin/meaning

Lichtenau received city rights in 1300 from King Albrecht I. The city belonged until 1803 to the county Hanau-Lichtenberg, and since to Baden(-Württemberg).

The arms were granted in 1900 and are derived from the seal of the city, known from 1407-1659. All later seals show the same image, but the swan sometimes is omitted. The helmet and swan are the crest of the Counts of Lichtenberg.
