From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted on October 19, 1963. The arms are partly canting; the fish in the upper half symbolises the Naab river, the tower in the lower half the castle (Burg). Fishing has also been of economic importance historically. The tower also symbolises the fact that the area was on the border with Bohemia. The blue fess on yellow is derived from the arms of the Lords of Nothaft, one of the local noble families.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
