Coat of Arms

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

adopted 13 Aug 1948 (1566)
Origin/Meaning:
The first quarter shows the arms of the Counts of Hohnstein, who founded the village, which became a city in 1521. The second quarter shows the patron saint, St. Andreas. The third quarter shows miner's tools. The city has always been an important mining town. The fourth 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 granted on 13 August 1948 and again on 4 July 1951.
The arms were already used in the 19th century, but were never officially granted. In 1938 the arms were officially granted, but the then German 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 cross. This was corrected in 1951.
