Waldbronn Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a bend wavy Argent, in dexter base a waxing crescent Or with face, in sinister chief a plough share Or.
Etzenrot (1971) and Busenbach (1972) were incorporated into Reichenbach. Reichenbach was renamed on 19 November 1974 as Waldbronn. The new name is alluding to the importance of tourism and spa. The municipality kept the arms of Reichenbach, a silver bar in a blue shield, the family arms of the Lords of Schmalenstein, local rulers until 1371. The new arms display a bend wavy, in order to symbolise the location east of Albtal valley and the spa. Plough share and crescent had been local symbols of Busenbach and Etzenrot.
