The name Steinwiesen appears for the first time in the year 1323 authentic in history. In 1386 the rafters business in the Frankenwald was first mentioned. Steinwiesen obtained market privileges in 1743 through Friedrich Karl, bishop to Bamberg and Würzburg. With directive of April 1937, the governor of Bavaria, knight Franz of Epp lent the community of Steinwiesen the right to lead an own crest. The community flag with three strips in the sequence red-white-green was approved 1968 by Bavarian Interior Ministry.
