German In Gold ein durchgehendes rotes Kreuz, überdeckt mit einem geteilten Herzschild, darin oben in Blau ein silberner Wellen­ schrägbalken, unten in Silber ein blauer Dreiberg


The arms were granted on May 29, 1952.

The cross is derived from the arms of the Waldgassen Abbey, which played a major role in the local history for several centuries. The small escutcheon shows in the upper half the Saar river. The lower half shows the three hills Griesberg, Blasenberg and Weizenhübel, who played a role in the defences against the French army in 1679.
