The arms were granted on January 7, 1937.
The upper part of the arms shows the local church. The church of Helden was founded in the 11th century and is thereby one of the oldest churches in the region. The base shows the arms of the Von Helden family, who originated from the village and had their estate in Helden.
Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
