The arms were granted on January 2, 1926.

The arms show the lion of the Pfalz, holding a shield with in the upper part the diamonds of the Wittelsbach family, Kings of Bayern and Counts of the Palatinate (Pfalz). The anchor is a symbol for the importance of sailing and the local harbour on the Rhine river. The town belonged since 1574 to the Pfalz and the arms first appear in the 17th century, with the lion as supporter.

Literature: Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
