The arms show St. Lawrence, the patron saint of the town as well as of the smiths, a common profession in the town. The first use of the combination of saint and church is known from 1558, but must be older, as it dates from after the Reformation. The present colours are used since the middle of the 20th century, but otherwise the arms have never changed.

In the Kaffee Hag albums of the early 20th century the arms were shown in a different colour and slightly different comopsition, see below.
