Sankt Andreasberg Coat of Arms

[Sankt Andreasberg CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 2 June 2007

Shield quartered; 1st quarter chequered of 12 of Gules and Argent; 2nd quarter Argent a saint nimbed Or and dressed Azure holding a saltire; 3rd quarter Argent hammer and mallet Sable in saltire; 4th quarter Gules a lion passant, guardant Or, armed and tongued Azure over three barrulets Or.
Meaning:
The 1st quarter shows the arms of the Counts of Hohnstein, who founded the village, which became a city in 1521. The 2nd quarter shows the patron saint and name giver St. Andrew. The 3rd quarter shows miner's tools, as the city has always been an important mining town. The 4th quarter shows the arms of the Counts of Scharzfeld-Lutterberg (see also Bad Lauterberg). The lion is the lion of the Welfen dynasty, who ruled the city from 1593.
The arms were confirmed on 13 August 1948 and again on 4 July 1951.
The arms were already used in the 16th century. In 1938 the arms were approved, but the then German NS-regime did not approve of religious symbols, and the canting St. Andrew was replaced by a pine tree to symbolise the local forests.
After WW2 the city returned to the original arms, but the description of 1948 was not clear in whether the saint was placed behind or in front of the saltire. This was corrected in 1951.
