The arms were officially granted on February 18, 1939.

As no historical seals or arms were known, the above arms were proposed by the State Archives of Prussia. The three small hills are a canting element, Lienen is derived from (Berg)Lehne, or place next to a range of hills. The three water lilly leaves are taken from the arms of the Counts of Tecklenburg as well as those of the Tecklenburg district, to which the village historically belonged.
