Wappen der Welt
Civic heraldry of Germany
The arms were officially granted on July 1, 1972.
The arms show a red piece of barbed wire, a symbol of the former border between East- and West-Germany, which was situated very close to the village. The green colour represents the fields and forests. The silver horse refers to the hamlet of Weisses Ross (white horse) in the former municipality.
