The municipality never had arms prior to 1974. The above arms were designed in 1987.

The plough is a symbol for the agricultural character of the village. The area was characterised by different landscapes; the moors and heath, the hills of the Böhrde and more sandy soils. The red is the colour of the heather, the oak represents the forests on the sandy (golden) soil. The base shows the local hills and an urn, found in the 'Hünenkeller' (Hun's cellar), symbolising the longtime settlements in the area.
