The arms of Ense were granted on January 22, 1971.

The upper half of the arms shows a tool used for horses (Pferdepramme, I don't know the English word), derived from the arms of the Von Ense family, who played an important role in the local history. The division line is derived from the old arms of Bremen, and symbolises the Watterlappe castle. The castle was the seat of the Lords Von Fürstenberg, whose arms, two gold bars in red, are shown in the lower half.
