The arms are based on the oldest known seal of the city, which is known since 1389. The seal and the arms show the image of St. Liborius of Le Mans, patron saint of the city. The person was described in older documents as St. Peter, the patron saint of the state and diocese of Bremen. The Archbishops of Bremen built a castle, around which the city developed. The composition was officially granted as arms in 1948.
