Ein achtspeichiges goldenes Rad in rotem Schild.
The arms were granted on October 11, 1993 and again on October 1, 2015.
Radkersburg was founded in the middle ages as a border town, for trade and as a fortification. It has received city rights in the late 13th century.
The arms are canting. Radkersburg appears to be called after a medieval nobleman, but this is disputed among historians. For centuries, the city has used a seal showing a wheel (Rad).
