The arms were officially granted on December 7, 1959.

The arms show elements from arms of the families that ruled the village in historical times. The plough iron is taken from the arms of the Pfluge von Rabenstein family, who ruled the area from 1463-1516. The eagle is taken from the arms of the Lords (later Princes) of Lobkowitz, who ruled the village from 1562-1807.
