Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a silver field beneath a red chevron, which is flanked by two 6-point stars of the same colour, is a saltirish pair of keys with beards outward bound.
Meaning:
According to source the chevron is taken from the arms of the counts of Ravensberg, the former rulers of the town. The origin of the stars is unknown. The pair of crossed keys since 1909 has been interpreted as "keys of the city". Stadler 1972 claims, the keys might be taken from the arms of the city of Lübbecke, which is however considered as doubtful.
Note:
The prefix "Preußisch" was added in order to distinguish from the nearby Hessisch Oldendorf, historically being part of the County of Schaumburg, which became a posssion of Hesse in 1647, nowadys a part of Hameln-Pyrmont County.

Flag and coat of arms were approved by Regierungspräsident Detmold on 28 September 1976, while the banner is used but never was approved officially.
