Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
The arms were granted on February 13, 1980.
The arms show a crosier for Verdun church, which had many possessions in the area. The colours are derived from the arms of the Counts of Veldenz, who ruled the region for a long period of time. The crown (Krone) and mountain (Berg) are canting elements.
