Shield divided by a bend wavy Or, above right Sable two swords Argent in saltire, beneath left Vert two mattocks Argent in saltire.
The arms are canting. The name is derived from Kempfenrod. Kempfen, or Kämpfen, meaning "fighting", which is symbolised by the crossed swords in chief. The suffix "-rod" means forest clearance, which is symbolised by the mattocks in base. The bend wavy is representing Seemenbach, a local creek.
The arms were approved on 10 May 1968.
