Eutin Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a blue shield is a golden (= yellow) cross. Two arms are ending in a fleur de lis, the others in a rose having eight petals each. Between the arms are golden initials "VTIN".
Meaning:
Roses and lilies at the ends of the crossbars are medieval symbols of Christian virtues and thus symbolizing the sovereignty of the church, i.e. the bishops of Lübeck. According to Stadler rose and lily are symbolizing justice and jurisdiction, which was gained in 1257 under supervision of the bishops of Lübeck. The inscription "VTIN" (=UTIN), known since approx.. 1215, reveals the Slavic origin of the settlement, which had been overtaken by Dutch settlers at the instigation of Count Adolf II of Holstein. Already since 1156 the settlement belonged to the dominions of Bishop Gerold of Lübeck, who established an episcopal court and a market in Eutin, which gained city rights in 1257, granted by Bishop Johann von Diest of Lübeck. During the Protestant Reformation the bishopric was changed into a principality, since 1586 the prince was a member of the house of Gottorf. Eutin lost its importance, after the bishopric was united with the Duchy of Oldenburg in 1773. The arms are based upon the old main seal. The existence can be proven in stamps since 1337.
