The arms were granted in 1894 by the Duke of Braunschweig, at the same time as the city rights were granted.

Previously, the village Neustadt-Harzburg used a pine tree in its seal. The savage and tree symbolise the position in the Harz mountains. The gate is the local castle, built in 1065 by Emperor Heinrich IV. The castle at first was an imperial eagle, later a possession of the Dukes of Branschweig-Wolfenbüttel. The arms in the gate are thus a combination of the lions of Braunschweig with the imperial eagle.
