The arms were first designed for the area in 1951, as the are was at that time a part of the Kymi province. In 1997 it became a sub-region in Etelä-Suomi province. When the province of Etelä-Suomi was abolished, it became a separate region.

The arms were adopted again for the sub-region in 1997.

The arms show a salmon and fishing net, as the region is named after the Kymijoki river, a major salmon river and fishing was an important activity in the history of the area.
