Shield Argent, divided by a saltire Gules, each quarter is charged with an annulet Or.
Meaning:
The arms are based on the arms of the Ankum kin. The family originated from the village and held many important positions in the Osnabrück region. In the 16th century the family moved to Eastern Frisia and later to East Prussia. The village has been using the arms of the family at least since 1905, but it was used more extensively after WW2. In 1961 the municipality wanted to formalise the use of the arms, but first needed the approval of the family. The approval was granted and in 1964 the arms were officially granted.
The arms were approved on 25 November 1964.

Meaning:
The arms display the gate of the Cistercian monastery built by Otto Count of Ravensberg in 1231. It was seculiarised in 1786. Similar depictions also appear in the arms of the namesake comprehensive municipality and the former county. Beneath the gate a bridge (German: Brücke) was added as a distinguishing mark and a canting element. The colours are taken from the colours of the arms of the Counts of Calvelage, later Counts of Ravensberg, who had their first seat in Bersenbrück.
The arms were approved in 1956, when the market town gained city status.
