Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 11, 1978.

The colours are those of the former district and State of Braunschweig, the wolf's head is taken from the arms of the Peine district, to which the municipality belongs since 1974. The wolf's head is also used in the local village on a memorial in the local church dating from 1439. The base refers to the -Burg (castle) part of the name, whereas the small golden line symbolises the Aue river. The wheat ears symbolise the agricultural character of the village.
