Wappen von Reinickendorf

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on November 28, 1955.

The arms are based on the old village seal, which showed a landscape with a canting fox (Rein is the name of a fox in some legends), some trees and a field of wheat. This seal was also used until 1955 as arms (above left). In the new arms the bunch of wheat was replaced by six wheat-ears. The six wheat-ears symbolise the six former villages.

As with all arms of the Berlin districts, a mural crown with a small shield with the arms of Berlin could be used.
