|German||Im geteilten Schild oben ein nach rechts liegender roter Drache [Fafnir aus der Nibelungensage] in Gold mit erhobener rechter Pranke, unten eine schräg liegende, goldene Fidel in Rot.|
The arms were granted in 1971.
The dragon was taken from the old arms of the district Worms. The violin is taken from the arms of the city of Alzey. Both symbols also refer to the Nibelungenlied, one of the medieval stories of Germany, which plays in the area. In the story Siegfried kills a dragon (Fafnir) and there is a character called Volker, who plays the violin.
