Unter silbernem Schildhaupt, darin eine blaue Wellenleiste, über silbernem Dreiberg siebenmal schräg geteilt von Rot und Silber.
The arms were officially granted on September 17, 1975.
The chief with the blue wavy bar is a canting element, -bach means stream or brook. The bends are taken from the arms of the Von Polheim family, as Gundacker von Polheim granted market rights in 1623. He ruled the village from 1599-1629. The base shows three white hills, taken as a symbol for the Schneeberg (snow-mountain) estate, to whcih both Tiefenbach as well as Altenschneeberg belonged.
