The arms were granted on October 9, 1951.

The lion is taken from the old seal of the village, dating from 1850. The meaning of the lion, however, is not known. The local fountain shows the arms of Württemberg, which is supported by a lion, and this may be part of the origin of the lion in the arms. The bars are derived from the arms of the Lords von Bernhausen, who owned the local castle as well as the village for a short time in the 15th century, and who later ruled the village as governors for the Dukes of Württemberg.
