(de) In Schwarz ein abnehmender gebildeter silberner Halbmond.
The oldest seal from Weitenung dates from the early 19th century which shows a crescent surrounded by laurel leaves, but not placed in a shield. At the end of the 19th century a seal was used that showed the crescent in a crowned shield.
In July 1900 the State Archives approved the arms in black and white, to distinguish the arms from other municipalities with similar arms.
