The arms were granted on October 7, 1950.

The arms show in the chief the arms of the Lords of Kirkel in changed colours (originally red-silver), and the old village symbol, which has been used as the arms of the village until 1950. The strange symbol, which has been described as a snorkel, a snail or a spring, is known as the local symbol since the 18th century. It has been stated that the figure used to be a circle and thus be a canting symbol (Kirkel was translated in Latin as circulus). It has also been postulated that it represents the hill on which the village is built. It would thus originally have been some concentric circles.

Literature: Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
