The arms were officially granted on December 7, 1962.

The arms are a combination of the checquered field of the arms of the Counts of Sponheim, to which the area historically belonged, and in the base an urn, which was found in a prehistoric grave in the municipality. The urn thus symbolises the long history of the village.

Literature: Heyen und Zimmer, 1966
