    SG Grafschaft Hoya Coat of Arms

    Shield Or, two bear paws addorsed Sable in pale armed Gules, connected by a piece of fur of the same, in base a fess wavy Azure.
    Meaning:
    The arms are based on those of former Syke County (1885 - 1932) and Grafschaft Hoya County with seat in Syke, which had been dissolved on 1 August 1977. Grafschaft Hoya County was established in 1932 by a merger of the counties Syke and Hoya. Only a blue fess wavy was added in the current arms, symbolising Weser River. The bear paws had been the family arms of the Lords of Stumpenhausen, which renamed their kin in the beginning of the 13th century, being then Counts of Hoya. The kin died out in 1582. The county was acquired by the Celle branch line of the Dukes of Braunschweig-Lüneburg.

    Bücken Coat of Arms

    Schield Or; two bear paws Sable in pale, armed and cut Gules; between the paws issuant from base a crozier Sable.
    Meaning:
    Bücken is located in the core area of the Counts of Hoya, which became extinct in 1582. Count Otto of Hoya granted several privileges of a market town in 1413. Nevertheless the existence of town seals is proven not before the 17th century. Seals and arms only displayed the bear paws from the family arms of the counts. Since the 2nd half of the 20th century a crozier was added in the town seals, exceeding the top of the shield and the staff reduced to a mere line of partition.The crozier is symbolising the former Bücken Abbey, founded in 882 by the Bishop of Bremen. According to Ralf Hartemink between 1413 and 1582 the town had been a condominion of the abbotts and the counts. The crozier was added to the arms in its current pattern in 1983.
    The arms were approved on 18 July 1983.

The scales are symbolising justice and are reminding on the fact that during many centuries the village had been a place of execution of criminals, sentenced to death by the court of the Hoya district. The last execution occurred in 1846.

Their colours black and gold are those of the County of Hoya, to which the area historically belonged. The two horses in the lower half are symbolising the rural character, as well as the State of Lower Saxony. The eight legs are symbolising the eight former municipalities. Two horseheads are also a common decoration on the roofs of farmhouses in the region (see Heemsen, and the Nienburg district). The bar wavy is symbolising Weser River and the Alvese Lake, which are also symbolised by the blue colour. The arms were approved on 9 January 1984.
