The arms were officially adopted in 1901.
The division of the arms reflects the three villages in the municipality. The silver tower is taken from the arms of the medieval Knights of Büren and refers to the village of Büren. The middle part is taken from the arms of the Knights von Waltersberg and refers to their possessions in Niederrickenbach. The squirrel is taken from the arms of the medieval Knights von AA, who had possessions in Oberdorf village.
