From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted in 1966 and confirmed on January 7, 1975. The moor[ess] in the arms is taken from the arms of the Counts of Kirchberg. The background in the upper part is taken from the arms of the Counts of Berg, whereas the lower part is taken from the arms of the Lords of Neuffen. The three dynasties held different parts of the county.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
