The arms were granted on April 21, 1975.

The municipality of March was created in 1973 after the merger of the four former municipalities. As it was not possible to combine the four old arms, new arms were designed. The name March was derived from the medieval Buchheimer Mark (territory of Buchheim), mentioned first in 769. The area belonged to the monasteries of Lorsch and St.Gallen, hence the combination of the cross of Lorsch with the bear of St. Gallen in the arms.
