Coat of Arms

[Wendeburg municipal CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 22 Aug 2007

Description of coat of arms:
Shield Or; a wolf's head Azure, armed Argent and tongued Gules; flanked by two wheat ears Azure, base dovetailed Azure, charged with a barrulet Or.
Meaning:
The colours are those of the former county and Duchy of Braunschweig, the wolf's head is taken from the arms of Peine County, to which the municipality belongs since 1974. The wolf's head is also used in the local village on a memorial in the local church dating from 1439. The base is referring to the -Burg (= castle) suffix of the name, whereas the golden barrulet is symbolising Aue River. The wheat ears are symbolising the agricultural character of the village.

Bortfeld Coat of Arms

[Bortfeld village CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 23 Aug 2007

Description of coat of arms:
Shield parted per pale of Or and Azure, two staffs of office in saltire, topped by a fleur-de-lis each, in counterchanged colours.
Meaning:
The two staffs are taken from the arms of the Lords of Bortfeld, who originated in the municipality and who became extinct in 1685. The original colours had been silver and red, but these were changed into the colours of the Duchy of Braunschweig, to which the area historically belonged.

Sophienthal Coat of Arms

[Sophienthal village CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 24 Aug 2007

Description of coat of arms:
Shield parted elevated per chevron; above Or two hazel leaves Azure, each with a small nut; beneath Azure a bell Or.
Meaning:
The arms display a point symbolising the estate, built in 1724 by Duchess Elisabeth Sophie Marie of Braunschweig, of which only parts remained. The village developed around the estate. The bell is symbolising a gift of the duchess to the church in Fürstenau, but since 1896 it is the main bell of the local church. The hazel leaves are symbolising the local nature, as well as many place names referring to hazel trees. The colours are those of the Duchy of Braunschweig, to which the area historically belonged.

Wendezelle Coat of Arms

[Wendezelle village CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 25 Aug 2007

Description of coat of arms:
Azure, a linden emanating from an annulet, flanked by two wheat ears in pale, all or.
Meaning:
The annulet (ring) is symbolising the original form of the settlement, which can still be discerned today. The linden tree shows that justice was administrated here for the village and its environment. The wheat ears are representing agriculture. The colours blue and yellow signify that this place belonged for centuries to the Duchy of Braunschweig. The annulet stands for the character of the village, a round village (German: Rundlingsdorf), a village where the farms are arranged in a ring. The ring rounded a tree which stands for an "Erzkämmereigericht" till 1807, an old court.

Zweidorf Coat of Arms

[Zweidorf borough CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 26 Aug 2007

Description of coat of arms:
Shield Argent, abased a fess Vert, in chief a rose Gules with a 4-point star Argent in centre, seeded and barbed Vert.
Meaning:
The arms are based on the arms of the Von Zweidorf kin, who used a green fess with two half roses with four leaves rather than the more common 5 leaf-variety on either side. The municipality decided to use only one rose to distinguish the arms from the family arms.
