From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The old arms were granted on August 26, 1958 (...). The lion is taken from the arms of the State of Bamberg, as the largest part of the district historically belonged to the State of Bamberg. The lower part shows the wickerwork, a traditional handicraft in the district.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
