Arms of Ludwig Averkamp

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms show quartered the arms of the Archdiocese in I and IV and the arms of the Archbishop in II and III.

The personal arms are based on a medieval seal of the Chapter of the Diocese of Bremen. It showed Bishop Ansgar at the veneration of the enthroned Blessed Mother. The fleur-de-lys is a symbol of St. Mary, the crosier for Ansgar and the church for the cathedral church of Bremen. The fleur-de-lys also alludes to King Ludwig IX, the archbishop's namesake.

The archbishop Averkamp had already used the motto "Dominus prope" ("The Lord is near") from the Philippians (4.5) as Bishop of Osnabrück.
