Sulzthal Coat of Arms

Renaissance shield Argent, an eradicated apple tree Vert with apples Or on top of a mount issuant Vert, the trunk is superimposed by an initial "S" Gules.
Sulzthal gained the rights of market town in 1472, granted by the Counts of Henneberg. A seal with the current pattern in a Renaissance shield and a circumscrption "Flecken" (another word for market town) is known since the 2nd half of the 16th century. In the 17th century a smaller version was made. Since 1820 the existence of a seal was completely forgotten. The current pattern is based on the oldest seal despite of one detail, the initial had entangled the trunk.
