The arms were officially granted on April 23, 1979.

The arms first appear on the oldest seal of the town, dating from 1510. The cross is most likely adopted as a symbol for the yearly festivities on the Kreuzerhöhung, which were first held on September 14, 1482. The meaning and origin of the sheep is not known.
