The arms were designed for the village in 1997.
The wavy bend refers to the Weser river. The wheatear to the agricultural character of the village since the Bronze Age. The spear-tip is a Bronze Age find in the village and indicates the longtime inhabitation and cultivation of the area. It also refers to the many Bronze Age artifacts found in the area.
The chief refers to the monasteries that played a major role in the local history. The first monastery was founded in Schinna in 1148 by Count Wullbrand von Hallermund. Another monastery was founded close to the village in Loccum. These two monasteries are symbolised by the two windows in the chief. The design is based on the still visible remains of the monasteries.
