There are no historical seals or arms known for the village. The arms were designed in 1918 and are derived from the arms of the Lords of Nellingen, who ruled the village from the 12th until the 15th century. The bear is derived from the arms of the Lords of Bernstadt (bear-city) from which the Lords of Nellingen descended.
