The arms were granted on June 30, 1992.

The rooster is the symbol of the Counts of Henneberg, who in medieval times ruled the area. The water mill wheel is a symbol for the importance of the local water mill, which is now a protected monument. The mermaid is derived from a local legend. There are several stories about a nymph in a Lake of Death (Totenlache) in the local legends. Hence the mermaid was chosen as a symbol for the village.
