The shield is divided per fess into silver (=white) and green. Above three green beech trees are sprouting from the bottom of the silver field. In the green field lies a horizontal silver (=white) sword having a golden (=yellow) hilt.
According to source the figures are taken from a markstone of the Bispinghof (lit.: bishop's court). This mansion is considered to be the settlement core of the municipality.
