Bammental Coat of Arms

Shield Argent a tree Vert, flanked by two tulips Vert blossomed Gules; at dexter mantled Sable, charged with a sinister facing lion rampant Or, armed and tongued Gules; at sinister mantled barry-bendy (lozengy) of Azure and Argent.
The village had been a dominion of the Palatine Electorate from the 14th century until 1803, when it became a part of Baden. The oldest court stamp with prints since 1747 already displayed the current pattern of the arms. Lozenges and lion are alluding to the Palatine Counts of the Wittelsbach kin as local rulers. Seals from the 19th century only displayed the tree, which was considered to be canting, as the name of the municipality should have been derived from "Baum im Tal" (= tree in the valley). The current arms were designed in 1894, based on the oldest seal.

Banner and arms were approved on 12 May 1965 by Minister of Interior of Baden-Württemberg, published in GABl 360/1965.
