Könnern Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, under a baldachin Or (Saint) Wenceslaus I, King of Bohemia, statant, dressed Gules with lining of ermine and crowned by a ducal coronet, holding a sword Argent with hilt Or in his right hand and a palm frond Vert in his left hand, at his feet an inescutcheon, parted per fess of Gules and Argent, charged with three balls, ordered 2:1 in counterchanged colours.
Meaning:
Könnern, until 1911 Cönnern, originally being a possession of the Counts of Alsleben had been given away to Archbishopric of Magdeburg in 1004. Since 1180 commissionaires of the bishopric lived in the local castle. Later the local parish church was built upon the foundation walls of the castle. 1296 Könnern gained the title of an "oppidum", a fortified rural town. Besides agriculture stone quarries and depletion of slate developed until the 18th century. In the 19th century sugar mills, malthouses and mining of brown coal became additional business lines. St. Wenceslaus is the patron saint of the local parish church. The current pattern of his image first appeared on a local seal from 1364. Afterwards the pattern was modified in details, the saint was depicted in clad armour, sometimes nimbed and holding a shield Argent displaying an eagle by his left hand. Also the tinctures of the ineschutcheon changed. The meaning of the inescutcheon is unknown. It probably has nothing to do with St. Nicholas, the favourites are heraldic roses of the Counts of Alsleben or the decollated head of St. Maurice, one of the patrons of the archbishopric.

The current pattern of the arms was approved in 1993 or later.
