Hauenstein received city rights in 1317 and was until 1805 a possession of the Dukes (later Emperors) of Austria.
The arms are derived from the arms of the Lords of Hauenstein from the early 14th century. The arms were devised in the beginning of the 20th century, as the city never used its own seals.
