Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per pale. The dexter half shows a sinister facing, golden (=yellow) seahorse in a blue field. The sinister side shows a blue house mark in a golden (=yellow) field as follows: at the top of a vertical line is a chevron pointing upwards. At the dexter side of the bottom end is a sinister bendy line. In the upper half the vertical line is crossed twice by short horizontal lines. I quote the German description, which I can't translate, because I am no specialist in house marks.: bestehend aus Sparrenkopfschaft, Mittelkreuzsprosse und erhöhter Mittkreuzsprosse sowie einer vorderen Fußabstrebe
Meaning:
According to source the colours blue and yellow are alluding to the fact that the island had been a Swedish possession until 1815. Furthermore the colours are countercharging those of the flag of Juist Island, which has a partnership with Hiddensee Island.
