The arms were officially granted on December 22, 1970.
The arms show in the base a tree trunk and an axe. These are canting for the -schwenden part of the name (Schwenden = roden, meaning clearing forest). The trunk (locally known as Müsel) also refers to the former Müselbach region.
The linden tree refers to the progress in the village.
