Description of coat of arms:
Shield Gules three drops Or in fess, in base a triplemount Argent charged with a bar wavy Azure.
The drops are symbolizing the local oil production, the triplemount is symbolizing salt production and is a canting element, because the name of the commune means "mountains of salt". The bar wavy is representing Ems River.
