Leer County Coat of Arms

[Leer County arms] image by Jörg Majewski, 28 Dec 2007

In a blue shield is a silver (= white), rampant lion, armed golden (= yellow) and tongued red. Around his neck is an upside down golden (= yellow) coronet. The shield is crested by a a golden (= yellow) quatrefoil flanked by six ears of grain of the same colour.
Meaning:
The lion is the lion of the Ukena kin. Focko Ukena was the first calling himself chieftain of Leer. Around 1400 he established his power in the areas of Moormerland, Overledingerland, Uplengen and Rheiderland, nowadays all being parts of Leer County. The crest is symbolising the regions of the county and agriculture as main business line. The elements of the arms of Weener County, which had been incorporated in 1932, had no influence to the current arms.
