According to Armoiries communales en Belgique. Communes wallonnes, bruxelloises et germanophones, the arms of Eupen were adopted by the Municipal Council on 22 January 1972 and confirmed by Royal Decree on 10 March 1983.

The first arms of Eupen were granted by (Prussian) Royal Decree (William I) on 21 December 1864. They were identical to the present arms, with the addition of an eagle sable armed and crowned or langued gules issuant from the central tower of the mural crown.

In 1920, General Baltia, Governor of the Eastern Cantons (reincorporated to Belgium) issued a Decree banning the Prussian eagle from the local municipal heraldry, and the eagle was removed. The arms were probably designed after the arms of Jean van / von Oijpen, captured in Baeswiller in 1374, which show a cross engrailed with a label overall.[1]
