Brookmerland Comprehensive Municipality

Brookmerland consists of Marienhafe market town and the municipalities of Leezdorf, Osteel, Rechtsupweg, Upgant-Schott and Wirdum. The former southern part of Brookmerland, the home of the tom-Brook kin, was separated apart during the incorporation to France. The northern part was administered by Norden, the southern part, today more or less Südbrookmerland municipality, by Aurich. Later on Prussia kept the new boundaries.

Marienhafe Coat of Arms

The shield is divided per fess into red over gold (= yellow). Above is a golden (= yellow) demi-eagle issuant with coronets of the same colour above his head and wings. Below is a red anchor between two upside down beakers of the same colour.
Meaning:
Marienhafe had been the centre of the Brookmerland and was seat of a provost and his court. The egle is taken from the arms of the tom-Brook kin, former rulers of the Brookmerland, who were sporadically also ruling Eastern Frisia. Since 1396, the brotherhood of famous pirate Klaus Störtebeker, an enemy of Hamburg, used Marienhafe as a naval base and a hideaway supported by the local chieftain. The beakers are alluding to Störtebeker, while the anchor is representing shipping.
