The arms were officially granted on June 23, 1936.
The village was founded in 1723 by Count Friedrich Ludwig von Nassau-Saarbrücken when he established a glass factory in the area. This is symbolised by the arms, which show in the upper half the lion of Nassau and in the lower half two glass blower's pipes. The lion holds a miner's lamp, a symbol for the coal mining near the city. The colours of the lamp and pipes are not officially described, the above images shows the colours as used by the city.
