These arms were not officially granted, but have been in use since the 1950s in the present colours. The oldest use of a seal for Glashütten dates from 1802, when the village became part of Nassau. The three trees symbolise the fact that the village is surrounded by forests. The original seals showed three small shield with the arms of Nassau on the trees. These were removed in 1816.
