From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted on May 25, 1977 [presumably a typo for 1975].

The wheel is the wheel of the State of Mainz, which was part of the arms of both older counties [Miltenberg and Obernburg am Main]. The points are the arms of the State of Würzburg, and are here used as the arms for the Franconia area. The pale is the Main river and the chief is the arms of Bavaria. The area belongs since 1816 to Bavaria.

Literature: Linder and Olzog 1996.
