Lüneburg County Coat of Arms

[Lüneburg County arms] image by Jörg Majewski, 30 Dec 2007

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Azure a lion rampant Or armed and tongued Gules, at sinister Or three hearts Gules ordered per pale.
Meaning:
The arms are one of the oldest county arms in the country. The county is actually identical to the former Principality of Lüneburg, later upgraded to a duchy. The Dukes of Lüneburg from the Welfen kin used a lion as their arms. The lion in the dexter half of the arms is the lion of the Welfen in counterchanged colours. The hearts in the sinister half are taken from the Danish national arms. Duke Wilhelm of Lüneburg married in the 14th century Princess Helene of Denmark. The lion thus can also represent the Danish lion.

The arms were approved on 15 January 1927 by Prussian Minister of State.
