- (de) In Silber auf grünem Berg drei grüne Tannen, auf der Krone der mittleren ein rotes Eichhörnchen.
The arms are known since the first half of the 15th century. Originally the pine trees were beeches. In the 17th century the number of trees was often reduced to a single tree with a squirrel in the top (see f.e. also Vimmerby in Sweden). The actual meaning of the arms is not known. The present colours are derived from the money issued in Auma in 1921, as no historical colours were known. Those showed a blue field, which was not heraldically correct (see below), the field was therefore changed to silver.
Seal from around 1900
The arms by Hupp in the Kaffee Hag albums +/- 1925
Local emergency money from 1921
Postal cancellation 1981
