Civic heraldry of Germany - Deutsche Wappen (Gemeindewappen/Kreiswappen)
The arms were granted in 1970 and are mainly based on the arms of the former district Saarburg.
The castle is slightly changed and an additional background is added with the bars of Luxembourg, as a large part of the district historically belonged to Luxembourg.
