The arms were officially granted on February 12, 1962.

The silver eagle represents the County and later Principality of Leiningen; the red lion represents the duchy of Zweibrücken; the 3 red chevrons represent the County of Hanau-Lichtenberg; and the five silver balls on black the Lords of Sickingen.
