The arms were officially granted on June 26, 2002.

The municipality is situated on the border of the sandy Geest area and the marshy Dithmarscher Marsch. This is symbolised by the division line and colours. The three houses in the chief symbolise the new village (which is the meaning of the name). The lower half symbolises the village Farndorf in the municipality and shows two canting fern leaves. The silver and green bends symbolise the historical important Ochsenweg road. The golden part also symbolises the Engelsberg hill, a natural monument. The ball in the centre of the shield is a Bosselkugel. Bosseln is a traditional North-German and Dutch sport, also known as Klootschiessen or klootschieten in which balls are thrown and the purpose is to reach a certain distance in as few throws as possible.
