Angermünde Coat of Arms

Shield Argent; a castle Gules with three embattled towers and open port; on top of the towers a helmet Azure crested with peacock feathers proper (dexter), an eagle Gules (sinister) and a sinister facing hunter (centre) dressed Vert blowing a horn Or; in port a stag's head Or over wavy lines Azure.
Meaning:
The settlement developed under a castle of the Margraves of Brandenburg in 1230 and was mentioned as a city since 1284. It became a dominion of the Duchy of Pommern in 1354 but was regained by the margraves in 1424. After heavy destructions in the 30-Years-War (1618 - 1648) the city flourished again and many Huguenots and immigrants from the Palatinate settled down here. The pattern of the arms is based on different seals, e.g. the oldest one from 1292 and another under a dade of Chorin Monastery (1316). The castle is stressing city status. The helmet is taken from the arms of the Dukes of Pomerania, the eagle from those of the Margraves of Brandenburg. Hunter and stag are based on a legend: The poor stag first escaped but was finally killed just beneath the open port. The hunter afterwards blew his horn.

The current pattern of the arms was in use since 1976 and was approved on 3 January 1995.
