The arms were officially granted on August 10, 1967.

The arms symbolise the etymology of the name, which is derived from a deep ford (furt) in the Bist river. The French fleur-de-lys symbolises that the village was part of France from 1766-1815. The chief refers to the Waldgassen Abbey, to which the area historically belonged.
