The arms were granted on August 10, 1955.

Erichshagen was founded in 1535 around the castle of the Counts of Wölpe, who had their castle in the village from 1151-1300. The village received town rights and its new name in the late 16th century from Duke Erich of Calenberg. The old name, Wölpe, remained in use for a long time. The arms are show two bull horns, derived from the arms of the Counts of Wölpe.
