Hameln Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a red shield is a silver (= white) millstone, superimposed by a blue stone spindle. The shield might be topped by a silver (= white) church with port and windows blue. The church has two towers with blue spires. The other roofs are red. The greater arms (/Prachtstück/) are topped by a helmet with a church with different towers as crest and two lions as supporters.
Meaning:
The millstone alludes to the fact that the city was wellknown for its trade with millstone and as seat for a special kind of courts, dealing with mill rights. The existence of the arms is proven since 1531, depicted on a stone of the new city gate. The stone already appears in the oldest seal of the city from 1235. The greater arms are known since the 17th century. In 1939 a proposal was made, which omitted helmet and supporters and gave the church a stylized outfit.
