    Introduction of Eberswalde

    Eberswalde is a city of 50,000 inhabitants in the northeast of Berlin. It is the capital of Barnim County. In 1970, the cities of Eberswalde and Finow were united under the name Eberswalde-Finow. Today the city is apparently called simply Eberswalde.

    Meaning:
    The eagle is symbolising that the city belonged to the Margraviate of Brandenburg. The boars (German: Eber) on the arms are canting and the oak is symbolising a wood (German: Wald) and is thus also canting.
