From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted on 14 January 1975. The crozier and the quartered shield refer to the two former rulers in the county, the Bishops of Eichstätt and the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach, from the Hohenzollern dynasty. The rose in the base of the shield symbolises the Free City of Roth, where people could apply for Imperial asylum during several centuries.
Literature: Linder and Olzog 1996
