Bath (health resort)
As a protected label , only state-approved spas are allowed to use the city name bath in Germany . Under certain circumstances, however, it is possible that a place may continue to use the place name suffix “Bad” even after the predicate “state-approved spa” has been withdrawn and that it remains in alphabetical order under “B” for “Bad” in place name lists. The reason for the “pragmatic” regulation was given in 2013: “The effort and costs for changing club flags and uniforms, for example, changing timetables, maps or place-name signs are in no relation to any benefit if the addition to the name is omitted ,Bath'."
