The arms were officially granted on March 5, 1982.

The village was founded by Benedictine monks from the monastery of Hornbach (near Zweibrücken) in the 13th century. During the Protestant Reformation the monastery was dissolved by the Counts Palatinate/Prince Electorate of the Palatinate (Kurfürst und Pfalzgraf). The black and gold colours of the arms refer to the arms of the Count Palatinate to which it belonged before the French Revolution.

Wheat represents the agriculture of the village, the tree (usually named an oak) symbolises the wealth in forests that dominate the area. The curved green foot refers to the name berg = mountain. The letter T represents the former village of Tiefenthal (Deep Valley) out of which the current village developed.

Literature: Debus, 1988
