Wappen von Einhaus

Official blazon

(de) In Grün mit von Silber und Schwarz zwölfmal gestücktem Bord eine silberne Stele, die oben in einem Radkreuz mit oben und seitlich überstehenden Balken endent.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on June 15, 1979.

The cross in the arms is derived from a late Gothic memorial stone in the village. On the spot of the cross St. Ansverus supposedly died as a martyr in 1066. The memorial itself dates probably from the late 14th century.
The bordure is derived from the arms of the Duchy of Lauenburg, to which the area belonged (see the district arms).
