The arms were granted on August 18, 1981.
The two crosiers represent the abbeys of Echternach and of St. Maximin in Trier, who both had most of the territory in possession. The silver eagle is derived from the arms of the Lords of Hellange, who oroginated from the village of the same name in the municipality. The black eagle is derived from the arms of the Aspelt family from the village of the same name.
