The arms were granted on June 16th, 1986.
The lands of the now municipality were subservient to the Cistercian abbey at Rein. In the 18th century, abbot Gerhard Schobinger, who had a church built at Großstübing, bore for arms: Argent, two bends Gules.
The colours were changed to represent the well-wooded municipality. The bends were changed to bends sinister in order to include a bend dancetté. This is to symbolise the old silver mining sites in the local mountains.
