The arms were granted in 1934.

The arms are derived from the arms of the local noble family Von Selesse, which had its estate in the village until they became extinct in the late 15th century. The use of the rooster as their symbol is known from 14th century seals.

Literature: Stadler, 1964-1971, 8 volumes.
