As there were no old seals or images available, it was decided in 1835 to devise new arms for the city. The original proposal showed a lady's hat, according to the local fashion and time. It was not granted, as hats tend to change during time with fashion.
Instead in 1838 the present arms were granted. The arms show the local parish church, on a mountain and surrounded by linden trees (Berg=mountain), making it canting arms. As the church was rebuilt, the arms had to be changed. Originally the church had two sharp towers, but in 1914 the towers were rebuilt.

The present arms were granted on December 30, 1930 and show the church from 1914.
