The arms were granted on October 10, 1951.

The village is on the border of three German States and this is shown by the bars in the colour of Niedersachsen. The wheel is the wheel of the State of Mainz, as the village historically belonged to Mainz. The three stars are taken from arms on the local parish-house, which used to be a Benedictan monastery.
