Origin/meaning

The arms were never granted, but have been used since the 18th century.

The arms were first used in the Paderborn Roll of Arms from the 18th century. The meaning of the different fields is not clear. The local castle and estate was a possession of the Raben von Pappenheim family in the 15th century and their descendants, the Raben von Calenberg family. The raven is a canting element for the family and was, together with the star, also part of the family arms. The meaning of the other elements is not known.


Literature : Meyer, 1940.
