The arms were granted on September 18, 1967.

The key and beaver are derived from important local families. The key was the canting element of the Lords von Schlüsselberg, and symbolises that this family owned the Adelsdorf estate in the 14th century. In 1696 the Lords of Bibra obtained the village and their canting arms (Biber=beaver) are shown in the second quarter. They owned the village until the early 19th century. The carp in the base symbolises the Aisch river and the carp farming.
