Wappen der Welt
Civic heraldry of Germany
The arms show a canoe, which was found in the moors before the second world war. It dated from prehistoric times. It was burned during the war. The eagle is derived from the arms of the Allena family, who owned the (now destroyed) castle in Canhusen since the 14th century.
