Diepholz County Coat of Arms

[Diepholz County arms] image by Jörg Majewski, 17 Dec 2007

Shield Or a lion rampant Gules, armed and tongued Azure, standing on a pair of bear paws Sable armed Gules in base-
Meaning:
The lion is taken from the original arms of the Lords of Diepholz, since 1531 Counts of Diepholz, displayed passant in the old county arms. The eagle was added to the old arms of the family in 1285 by marriage with the Counts of Rietberg, actually in tinctures of the Counts of Arnsberg, the Rietberg branch was an offspring of that kin. The bear-paws display the arms of the Counts of Hoya and are taken as a symbol of the former district Sulingen, that, since 1582, was part of their territory. The current arms only combine the lion of Diepholz with the bear claws of Hoya.
