(formerly WILDBAD IM SCHWARZWALD)
- (1957) In Silber auf grünem Hügel, aus dem eine silberne Quelle sprudelt, zwei grüne Tannen.
- (1974) In Gold zwei grüne Tannen, deren linke die rechte teilweise verdeckt, beide bis zur Mitte überdeckt von einer aus dem Unterrand aufsteigenden und in zwei Strahlen niederfallenden silbernen Fontäne.
After the merger in 1974 the arms were changed and officially granted on August 11, 1981. The basic design remained the same as in the previous arms below, but the colours were taken from the old arms of Calmbach.
In 1957 the previous arms were officially granted.
The oldest use of the arms of Wildbad date from 1441. The arms appear on the seal and show two pine trees and a fountain. The latter is a canting element (Bad=health resort, spa). Coloured images of the arms are known since 1596, but many different colours have been used through the centuries.
The arms by Hupp in the Kaffee Hag albums +/- 1925
Literature : Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes; John et al., 1990
