The arms were granted on November 6, 1980.

The wavy bend symbolises the Eisch river, that runs through the municipality and that has given its name to the village Eischen. The bend also divides the shield in two equal parts, as the municipality is made up from two older territories. The crown symbolises the Countess Ermesinde who granted the villages Hobscheid and Eischen some freedom and privileges in the 13th century. The fountain symbolises the Clairfontaine abbey and is thus a canting element. The abbey held many goods in the municipality.
