Wittingen Coat of Arms

[ city CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 13 Apr 2007

Shield Or, in base an impending embattled wall Gules with two embattled twowers, on the embattlements a lion statant Azure, armed and tongued Gules.
Meaning:
Around 1340/50 the Dukes of Braunschweig-Lüneburg gained complete control, after they had released older rights of the Knights of Knesebeck and the Margraves of Brandenburg. The market town was denoted as a city already in the 14th century. It became a titular city in 1859 and gained full city rights in 1929. The oldest known seal from 1369 displays already a gate with the lion of the dukes. The wall with towers is stressing the city status. Later seals display either the lion alone, or a building with the lion, the size and shape of the building has changed considerably during the centuries. The above design dates from the 19th century.
