Bad Sulza Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Or, a saint with skin Sable, nimbus Or and armour Azure, holding a lance of the same with a pennant with two horizontal stripes Vert over Argent, standing on a mount issuant Vert; at sinister Sable an eradicated linden Or.
Meaning: Sulza gained market rights in 1064 and was ruled in 1182 by commissionaires of the Landgraves of Thüringen. The town developed since 1243, when it became a dominion of the Margraves of Meißen. Sulza was famous for the production of salt since 1064. The owners changed frequently as follows: Duchy of Sachsen from the Ernestine branch of the Wettin kin (1485), the Albertine branch of the kin (1547), Sachsen Weimar (1772), Sachsen-Altenburg (1603) finally Sachsen-Weimar (1672), except the saltworks, which belonged to Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg and since 1827 to Sachsen-Meiningen. A spa began its business in 1847. In 1907 the settlement cores of Stadtsulza and Dorfsulza, which had been the oldest core, merged. The dexter half displays the arms of Stadtsulza, displaying St. Maurice, the patron of salters, known from local seals since 1567. The sinister half is representing Dorfsulza. The pattern is known from local seals since 1810.
