Foundation of the arms:
From the early Middle Ages until the beginning of the 19th century the bishops of Freising were propertied in Wörth; they had significant influence on the whole development of the villages belonging to the municipality. The Freising moor´s head recalls this in the municipal arms. The village name Wörth ("land surrounded by water") is represented in the municipal arms by the two chevrons wavy, corresponding to the rivulets Sempt and Schwillach in the municipal area.
The Bavarian Ministry of the Interior approved the adoption of the arms on February 20th 1967.
Design of the arms:
Heinz Bessling, Gauting.
