Bad Steben Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a round temple Argent, in its centre a fountain Argent pouring down from basin Or, above the fountain an impending initial "R".
Local seals displayed the pattern with the so called temple fountain since 1810, representing the local spa. The pattern was adopted into the coat of arms in 1871. The initial was added in 1953 in order to stress the character of a radium spa. The main tinctures are those of Bayern.
