The arms were granted on December 4, 1986.
The bars are derived from the arms of the Lords of Esch-sur-Sûre, who were also Lords of Useldange.
The cross is derived from the arms of the Lords of Septfontaines, who owned the village Rippweiler. It also symbolises the village Schandel. Schandel belonged first to the Lords of Sterpenich (in present Belgium), who also uses a similar cross in their arms. and later to the Lords of Hondelange, who used the cross with a dog's head on it.
There were no historical arms for the last village, Everlange.
