Official blazon

  • (de) In geteiltem und halbgespaltenem Schild, oben in Grün eine silberne Elster, unten vorn in Silber ein grünes stilisiertes Kastanienblatt, hinten ein rotes gemauertes Feld.


The arms were officially granted on December 10, 1993.

The magpie in the upper half is a canting element for the Weisse Elster river (Elster being the name for magpie in German), that flows through the municipality. The lower half shows a chestnut leaf, for the many chestnuts in the area. The fourth quarter shows a brick wall, symbolising the local tile industry.
