|Heraldry of the World (Wappen der Welt)|
|Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen|
The arms were officially granted on July 25, 1965. The arms show a beehive and two typical axes used by beekeepers. The beehive and the axes symbolise the (historical) importance of beekeeping in the municipality. The red kite in the upper half of the arms was still breeding in the municipality at the time, and was nearly extinct in the larger region.
Literature : Peters, 1974
