Harz County

Harz is a county in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. The county was established by merging the former counties of Halberstadt, Quedlinburg and Wernigerode as well as the city of Falkenstein (from the Aschersleben-Staßfurt County) as part of the administrative reform of 1 July 2007.
During the 1st meeting of the county council (Kreistag) of Harz County on 11 July 2007 new symbols were introduced by resolution KT I/0106 and became valid one day later.

[Harz county coat of arms] image by Jens Pattke, 19 Aug 2007

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Argent two trout rampant addorsed Gules, at sinister Gules two knives for credenza Argent hilted Gules in saltire.
Meaning:
The trout are taken from the family arms of the Counts of Wernigerode, who had been authorised by the church to evangelise the region. The fish due to tradition had been in the personal arms of St. Peter, who was a fisherman. The knives are taken from the arms of former Quedlinburg County, and are originated in the Imperial Collegiate Church of Quedlinburg. The basic colours are referring to the Bishopric of Halberstadt andHalberstadt County. Their arms had been also parted per pale into silver and red.
