The arms were granted on October 15, 1951 and again on March 1, 1993.
The arms are the arms of the Counts of Brabant-Limburg, combining the golden lion of Brabant with the red lion of Limburg. The local council already used these arms on its seal from 1337, where the shield was shown hanging from a tree.
In 1993 the arms were not changed, only the blazoning was adjusted.
