The arms were officially granted on September 20, 2004.
The name Kleve is derived from the older Kleef, meaning cliff. This is represented by the division line of the shield. The division also represents the fact that the village is situated on the border of the (higher) Dithmarscher Geest and the lower Eider valley.
The two wavy bars symbolise the Eider and the Brocklandsau, which run through the municipality. The horse symbolise the importance of horse breeding and riding in the area. The colours are those of the State as well as the Dithmarschen district.
