The arms were officially granted on August 7, 1969.

The lion and the bars are taken from the arms of the Von Steding family, who played a large role in the development and history of the village. The triple mountain in the base is a canting element (Berg=mountain).

The arms were first used as a seal, designed in 1936. Due to the Second World War arms were not granted at the time. Only in 1954 the municipality applied for arms, but it took until 1969 before the arms were actually granted.
