The arms were officially granted in 1948.

Verden received city rights in 1220 and was the seat of a bishop and an important Abbey. The city historically had two parts, the Norderstadt (which received the city rights), and the Süderstadt.
The Norderstadt used in the 13th century a seal a three-towered castle with in the gate a figure, representing the Bishop of Verden. On the towers are two falcons, indicating that the State of Verden was an independent state.

The Süderstadt used a seal, granted by the Swedish Queen Christine, with the typical cross, derived from the arms of the Abbey. The two parts were united in 1651 and the old Norderstadt seal was continued, see below. The cross, however appears as arms of the city. Since the 20 th century only the cross is used.
