The estate was distributed into Groß Collmar and Klein Collmar by his heirs. The ears are symbolising the two new estates. The ribbon is symbolising the common kinship of both. The ears are also symbolising agriculture. Another meaning of ears and ribbon is the transformation of both estates into the municipalities of Groß Kollmar and Klein Kollmar in 1867 and their unification in 1974. The anchor is symbolising trade and shipping in the local harbour.
