It displayed an embattled wall with port and two towers, in cntre a high tower and a palace, flanked by the local saints St. Simon and St. Judas. In 1290 the city gained control over the estate from the Imperial Reeves (Reichsvögte). In 1340 Emperor Ludwig the Bavarian granted the right to dispplay the Imperial Army Shield (Heerschildrecht). Thus in the first secret seal from 1345 the Imperial Egle is displayed. Ther is evidence since the 16th century that he was used in colour in local arms.

The fleur-de-lis is derived from the arms of the seal of Heinrich of Lochtum, displayed on a document from 1397. As a fleur-de-lis is not a very distinguishable symbol, the small bell was added. The bell represents the bell of the chapel of the estate of Adalbert I, Archbishop of Bremen in the village. Adalbert took refuge here in 1066. The chapel was destroyed in the 1930ies and the bell is one of the few remaining items from the chapel.
