The arms were officially granted on July 5, 1984.

The three chevrons are the arms of the Counts of Hanau-Lichtenberg, who ruled the area for a long period of time until 1793. The crosier and the letters A S are taken as symbols for the Stürzelbronn Abbey, which had many possessions in the village. The plough and the green fields symbolises the agricultural character of the municipality.

Literature: Debus, 1988
