SG Heemsen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Gules an embattled wall Argent masoned Sable, crowned by a tower with cone roof of the same; at sinister Or a bear paw Sable armed Gules.
Meaning:
The arms are based on the oldest seal of the city of Drakenburg, known from the early 17th century. The seal showed the local Drakenburg castle, and a bear's paw taken from the arms of the Counts of Hoya, who ruled the area at the time. Later seals of Drakenburg do not longer show the paw, as after the 30-years War the counts played no role in the area anymore.

Drakenburg Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, an embattled wall Gules masoned Sable with port Argent and three towers with cone roofs Azure. The shield is crested by a dragon couchant Azure.
Meaning:
The arms are canting, displaying a castle (German: Burg) and a dragon (German: Drache, derived from Drake). The arms are based on the oldest seal of the town, known from 1655. At least until the 1920ies different arms were in use, presented in 1925 by Otto Hupp. The shield of the former arms was parted per pale; at dexter Azure an embattled wall Argent, crowned by a tower Argent with cone roof Gules; at sinister Or a bear paw Sable, armed and cut Gules, which was alluding to the Counts of Hoya, the former rulers. The arms were approved probably in 2004, when the legal text was published.

Haßbergen Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, at dexter Gules a sinister facing horsehead Argent, at sinister Or a belfry Sable, issuant from base a triplemount Vert charged with a barrulet wavy Argent.
Meaning:
The horsehead is symbolising the importance of agriculture for the village, the historical trade routes and the shipping on the Weser river. Historically barges were pulled by horses along the river. At the same time a white horse in red is the symbol of the old
Kingdom of Hannover and the State of Lower Saxony. Finally, many old farmhouses bear a wooden horseheads in saltire on top of the roof. The belfry is a typical tower used near the local chapels. The colours gold and black are those of the Counts of Hoya, the former rulers. The barrulet wavy is representing Weser River, the triplemount is representing the local hills.
The arms were approved on 17 December 1984.

Kingdom of Hannover and the State of Lower Saxony. The wolf had been a common animal and as late as in 1948 farm animals were killed by wolves. The gold and black colours are those of the Counts of Hoya, the former rulers.
