The arms were granted on January 18, 1984.

Lug belonged until 1793 to the Gossersweiler council in the Germersheim Amt and the two crosses in the base of the arms are taken from the seal of the council. The whole area was part of the Pfalz, which is symbolised by the royal orb, one of the elements often used in the arms of the Princes of the Pfalz. The name Lug is derived from a medieval word meaning 'close to a gorge'. This is symbolised by the division line in the arms. The green colour symbolises the forests in the municipality.

Literature: Debus, 1988
