The arms were officially granted on April 20, 1959.

Euerdorf was a possession of the Archbishops of Würzburg, who fortified the city around 1600. The oldest seal dates from 1650 and shows already two vines. The vines indicate the (former) importance of viticulture for the area. In the oldest seal the shield has a chief with a Paschal Lamb (Agnus Dei), which replaced the vines as the main symbol on the shield in the 19th century. The Paschal Lamb has been used as arms until the late 19th century when the vines replaced the lamb.

The present arms are a little simplified as compared to the older early 20th century version.
