Springe County Coat of Arms

Shield Argent three heraldic roses Gules seeded Or and barbed Gules.
Meaning:
The county was established on 1 April 1885 by a merger of the cities of Eldagsen, Münder and Pattensen and the subcounties of Calenberg und Springe. Springe City became the seat of the county. In 1942 there had been minor changes of municipalities swapping from and to Alsfeld County. Springe County was dissolved on 1 March 1974. Major parts were incorporated into the counties of Hannover, including the name giving seat, and Hameln-Pyrmont, minor parts to nowadays Schaumburg County and nowadays Hildesheim County.
The arms show the three roses from the family arms of the Counts of Hallermunt, who ruled the whole county partially as vassals for the Bishopric of Münster. Already before 1300 the Welfen kin gained the souvereignty in the area and bought the remaining estates under control of the counts in 1411. The western part of Springe County around Bad Münder historically belonged to the Bishopric of Minden and was also acquired by the Welfen kin in the 13th century.
