From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

Wilhelmshaven became an important harbour at the end of the last century. In 1873 the town became a city and in 1919 its own urban district [kreisfreie Stadt]. The first arms were granted in 1892. (...) After the incorporation of Rüstringen new arms were designed in 1939. (...) Finally, in 1949, the present arms were granted. These arms are based on the old arms of Rüstringen.

Literature: Stadler 1964-1971.
