The arms were granted on January 15, 1935.

The arms show the chequered bar of the arms of the Counts of the Mark. The area historically belonged to the County of Mark. The three wolf-hooks are derived from the arms of the Brabeck family (see also Gladbeck), who lived for many centuries in the local castle.
