Karlsbad Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, starting at the dexter edge three pales Argent, in base narrowed and embowed and ending at the sinister edge, over all a bowl in counterchanged colours.
In 1971 the municipalities of Auerbach, Ittersbach, Langensteinbach, Mutschelbach and Spielberg merged and the new municipality adopted the current name. The name is alluding to the spa of Langensteinbach, which existed until the 19th century, established by Margrave Karl Wilhelm of Baden-Durlach in 1719 near a mineral spring. The bowl is referring to the spa and the three pales and two gaps are representing the five former municipalities. The tinctures are those of Langensteinbach.
