Wappen von Dingelbe

Official blazon



The arms are based on the seal from 1334 of Konrad von Elvede. The original name of the village was Elvede and the Von Elvede family probably originated from the village and became extinct in 1383. The name Elvede was changed in the 14th century to Ding-Elvede, to distinguish the name from another village Elvede. The prefix Ding, or meetingplace, was added as in 1232 a major court of the diocese of Hildesheim was held.
