Gespalten von Gold und Blau; vorne zwei schräg gekreuzte schwarze Stockhämmer, hinten eine silberne heraldische Lilie.
The arms were granted on September 11, 1962.
The arms show in the right half two hammers as a symbol for the stone cutting industry in the town. The fleur-de-lis in the left half is derived from the arms of the Benedict Abbey in Metten which was founded in 766, and which played a major role in the development of the town.
Literature: Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
