Wolfsburg Coat of Arms

[Wolfsburg coat of arms] 3:5 image by Jörg Majewski, 29 Sep 2007

Shield Gules with base Vert charged with three barrulets wavy Argent, a castle Argent with two embattled towers and a closed port, on the embattlements a wolf passant reguardant Or tongued Azure.
Meaning:
The city was founded on 1 July 1938 as the "Stadt des KdF-Wagens bei Fallersleben" (English: "City of the KdF-Car near Fallersleben") for only one purpose, the construction of cheap cars for everybody. But during WW2 there were produced military cars and other equipment. A few pieces of the KdF-Car came to being. They were the predecessors of post war VW Beetle (Volkswagen Käfer), officially "Volkswagen Type 1" or simply Volswagen (= the people's car). Worldwide more then 21,000,000 beetles had been built, more than 15,000,000 in Germany alone. The city was renamed to Wolfsburg on 25 May 1945. Name giver of the renamed city had been nearby Wolfsburg Castle, which was mentioned since 1135, being the home of the Bartensleben kin, since 1742 having the title of Counts of Schulenburg. Today the city is famous as the location of Volkswagen AG's headquarters and the world's biggest car plant.
The arms are canting, displaying a wolf and a castle (German: Burg). The barrulets wavy are symbolising the Aller River, the castle is furthermore alluding to Wolfsburg Castle. The red colour is referring to the former rural municipality Rothehof-Rothenfelde.

The arms were introduced by the local Hauptsatzung, version 1947, afterwards simplified and confirmed by the local council on 23 March 1950 and by Minister of Interior of Lower Saxony on 23 May 1950. Slightly redesigned, an open port with portcullis was replaced by the current pattern, the arms were again confirmed on 7 May 1961 by district governor (Regierungspräsident) of Lüneburg. Flag and banner were approved on 19 November 1955.

Shield Vert with base wavy Argent, issuant from base a watermill's wheel Or, in chief a linden twig Argent with three leaves, plunged by a sword Argent hilted Or in bend sinister over a judge's staff of office Or in bend.
Meaning:
Linden, sword and staff are alluding to the fact that Ehmen had been seat of a local court district with a special count (German: Gograf) as judge. After the accused had been sentenced, the staff was broken upon him. The sword was the instrument of execution. The linden was a tree, were usualyy court sessions were held.

Coat of Arms

[Fallersleben borough CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 1 Oct 2007

Shield Or semy of hearts Gules; a lion rampant Azure, crowned, armed and tongued Gules.
Meaning:
Fallersleben had been a market town. In 1428 it was acquired by the Lüneburg branch of the dukes of the Welfen kin. The oldest seal probably was introduced in 1488, together with the first mention of mayor and council. It had the unusual form of an Iberian shield and displayed the lion of the Welfen kin alone. Later seals and arms kept the pattern. The tinctures remained always the same, and thus it was unambiguous that it had been the Welfen lion. Hearts (27) and crown were added surely not before 1925, as Otto Hupp displayed the lion alone in the same year. Hearts and crown only were distinguishing marks in comparison with similar municipal arms.

Neuhaus Coat of Arms

[Neuhaus (Wolfsburg) borough CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 2 Oct 2007

Shield Gules, a castle Argent, superimposed by an inescutcheon Gules charged with two lions passant guardant Or (leopards) in pale.
Meaning:
The castle is a naturalistic representation of the local Neuhaus Castle. The inescutcheon displays the arms of the Dukes of Braunschweig, as Duke Magnus II of Braunschweig founded the city in 1372. The inescutcheon has the same pattern as the arms of the Duchy of Normandy. But both are not related to one another. Their identity is coincidental.
