The arms are derived from a village seal from the beginning og the 17th century. The village was a possession of the Archbishopric of Mainz, represented by the wheel, between 1484 and 1803. Before it was ruled by the Teutonic Order. Bend wavy, representing a creek, and base are canting. The partition of the banner displays a Franconian rake.
