The oldest known seal of the village dates from 1752 and shows a horseshoe, but not in a shield. In the 19th century the symbol appears in a (crowned) shield. The horseshoe is most likely the old village sign. The arms were officially granted in 1900 in the colours of the diocese of Speyer, as the village historically belonged to the State of Speyer.
