Wappen von SULZTHAL

Origin/meaning:
The arms were officially granted on February 12, 1959.

The oldest known seal of the city, known from the latter part of the 16th century, already shows these arms. The second, 17th century seal also shows these arms, but later seals only show the name of the town. In 1959 the historical arms were restored, with the exception that the town's initial is now placed in front of the apple tree instead of around the tree. The meaning of the apple tree as such is not known.

Hupp showed in the 1920s with the S around the tree:
