The arms were granted on June 14, 1939.

The three hooks in the arms are the symbol of the Amt Hemer, to which the village belonged. The hooks are placed in a mountain as an indication of the mountaneous character of the area. The upper part shows two plough irons and symbolise the agricultural character of the village at the time.
