The arms were adopted by the local council in 1906.

The arms show the lion of the arms of the Lords of Echterdingen, dating from the 13th century. The lion never appeared on seals or older arms. The town used several symbols as village signs in the 18th and 19th century; most often a kind of wheel, used during the wheat harvest, or an orb.
