The old arms were granted on October 1st, 1951.

The deer antler in the chief is taken from the arms of Württemberg, in which the county is situated. The colours are not the colours of the arms, but of the flag of Württemberg. The eagle is taken from the arms of the city of Esslingen am Neckar. The three small shields on the eagle represent the three parts of the district, the Schurwald, Filder and Neckartal.
