Official blazon
German In Blau drei goldene dreimastige Schiffe im Stil des 16. Jahrhunderts in der Stellung 2 : 1 mit goldenen Segeln und roten Wimpeln; auf den Großsegeln je ein rotes Beizeichen (1. Pflug, 2. Fisch, 3. Stierkopf).
English blazon wanted


The arms were granted on July 10, 1972.

The arms are based on the arms of the former county Eiderstedt. The symbols of the ships differ from the old arms, in that the plough is the symbol of the former county Husum, the fish is slightly changed and represents the typical herring of the island of Sylt in the former county Südtondern. The ox-head is still the symbol for Eiderstedt.
