Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on February 3, 1959.

The arms show a tower, the name Burk comes from Burg, or castle, and refer to the Roman castle or fortress in the village. Until 1959 the village used a seal with a farmer, castle and three stars. The stars were taken into the new arms.
