Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Shield Argent, the western façade of a church Gules masoned Argent, in port Azure a saint Argent in half length portrait, nimbed and dressed Or, in chief an impending heraldic rose Gules, seeded Or and barbed Vert.
Meaning:
The façade of the local Romanic parish church and St. Alexander, its patron saint, were already depicted on the first seal before 1230. The church towers however collapsed in 1214 and 1219.. The rose is taken from the arms of Count Burghard of Oldenburg-Wildeshausen and appeared on seals until 1233. The secret seal from the 14th century displayed an embattled wall, crowned by a defence tower, which was flanked by the saints head and an inescutcheon with the key of Bremen. Later the seals degraded. In the 19th century the old pattern was restored, but the colours of the arms were chosen arbitrarily.
