The arms were officially granted on July 18, 1983.

The new arms combine the claws of the previous arms with a crosier. The crosier symbolises the former Bücken Abbey, founded in 882 by the Bishop of Bremen. Since 1413 the Abbot and the Counts of Hoya ruled the village. The crosier in combination with the claws already appeared in the seal of the village from 1413.
