Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Shield Argent, a hunting arrow Gules in fess, flanked in chief by a wheel Sable with three spokes in its sinister half, and in base by a hunting horn Azure with metal fittings Or and cord Gules.
Meaning:
The wheel is taken from the arms of former Vörden market town. Arrow and horn are taken from the arms of former Neuenkirchen (Oldenburg) municipality, to which also Holdorf belonged. The arms of that former Neuenkirchen displayed a horn in base and a hatchet (an axe to be thrown without hilt) Azure in chief and had been approved on 3 December 1936. After WW2 Holdorf became an independent municipality and the arrow was added in 1954. All charges are hunting tools and are alluding to the nearby Dammer Berge with many wildlife in its forests. The horn furthermore is reminding on the Horne kin, who had been burgers in Horneburg castle, which today is no longer located in the municipality's territory, until the 15th century. The new arms with arrow were approved by Minister of Interior of Lower Saxony on 13 March 1954. In 1974 Vörden market town and the municipalities Hinnenkamp and Hörsten were incorporated into Neuenkirchen (Oldenburg). There was however resistance in Vörden, which preferred to be an independent municipality in Osnabröck County. On 12 May 1992 the Federal Constitution Court (Bundesverfassungsgericht) decided that Vörden should be part of Neuenkirchen. As a concession the wheel was added and the municipality was renamed Neuenkirchen-Vörden, last but not least as "Neuenkirchen" is a frequent municipal name in Germany.

Vörden Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Shield Argent, a wheel Sable with three spokes in its sinister half.
Meaning:
Vörden had been a market town since the late 16th century. Arms and flag were granted in 1603. The arms are a modification of the arms of Osnabröck, which displayed a wheel with eight spokes. The castles of the Bishopric of Osnabröck all displayed arms with wheels and a smaller number of spokes: Osnabröck and Wiedenbröck six spokes, Iburg five spokes and Melle four spokes. Vörden as the newest bishop's castle displayed three spokes. The castle was improved in 1365 by the bishops and a settlement was established in 1386, having the rights of a trading post (German: Wigbold). Since 1391 there existed a local constitution, the first seal appeared in the 15th century. The modification of the wheel is unusual, as all three spokes are placed into the sinister half. At the end of the 19th century the position of spokes was changed that way, that it appeared as if it had three spokes of a 4-spokes wheel with just one spoke missing. The current pattern was implemented by Otto Hupp. Vörden had been the residence of the Count of Wasaburg, an illegitimate son of Gustav Adolf King of Sweden, from 1643 until 1650.
