The arms were granted in 1965, but have been used for a longer time. The arms are derived from a 17th century seal that showed only a horseshoe. The horseshoe is a common village sign in the Pfalz area. The colours are taken from the arms of the State of Mainz, to which the village belonged.

Literature: Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
