From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted on June 15, 1962. The dexter part of the arms show the lion of Bamberg, the bishops of Bamberg were one of the largest land owners in the district. The unicorn is the arms of the Ritterkanton Steigerwald, one of the historical territories in the district. The arms with the unicorn were granted in 1718 by Emperor Charles VI.

Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
