Roth County Coat of Arms

Shield Or a heraldic rode Gules seeded and barbed Argent, mantled, at dexter quartered of Argent and Azure, at sinister Gules a crozier issuant Argent in pale.
The crozier and the quartered shield refer to the two former rulers in the county, the Bishops of Eichstätt and the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach, from the Hohenzollern dynasty. The rose in the base of the shield symbolises the Free City of Roth, where people could apply for imperial asylum during several centuries.
