Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
The arms were granted on July 20, 1964.
The lion in the upper part is the lion of the Rheingrafen (counts of the Rhine), to which the village historically belonged. The base shows a canting chapel (Kapelle), based on the local village church.
