The arms were granted on August 16, 1977.

The thorn bush is taken from the previous arms of Delbrück, but now has 10 fruits, each symbolising one of the former municipalities. The dog is taken from the arms of the former Amt Boke. The cross is the old symbol of Delbrück and at the same time the symbol of the former State of Paderborn.

The previous arms were granted in 1939

Wappen von Delbrück/Arms (crest) of Delbrück

These arms symbolise the historical place where the courts were held, vor dem Hagedorn (meaning before the thorn bush). Later the place received certain privileges from the Bishops of Paderborn.

The village itself used on its seal a cross, derived from the arms of the State of Paderborn. The cross was used until 1939, as shown by Hupp see below, taken from the only historical seal of the city, known from 1748.
