Rotenburg County Coat of Arms

[Rotenburg (Wümme) County arms] image by Jörg Majewski, 6 Jan 2008

Shield parted by a barrulet Sable; above Argent a lion rampant Gules, crowned Or, armed and tongued Azure, holding a cross patty fitchy sable by his right forepaw; beaneath quartered of Argent and Azure, charged with a cross Gules in bend superimposing a cross Argent in bend sinister.
Meaning:
The old arms show the lion, taken from the arms of the Kingdom of Hannover and used as a symbol for the Amt Rothenburg, one of the counties in the Kingdom. The cross is taken from the arms of the Bishopric of Verden, former ruler in parts of the district. The lower part shows the Wümme River. The new arms combine the lion from the old arms with the keys from the arms of the Archbishopric of Bremen alluding to its patron saint St.Peter, furthermore representing the former county of Bremervörde.
Sources: German WIKIPEDIA and Stadler 1964, p.78.
