Wappen von Werder (Havel)

Official blazon

  • (de) In Silber gespalten; vorn am Spalt ein roter goldbewehrter halber Adler; hinten pfahlweise drei grüne Kleeblätter.


The arms were officially granted on March 26, 1993.

The origin of the arms is not well known. The arms are derived from a 17th century seal of the town. The eagle is the eagle of Brandenburg, the 3 leaves probably symbolise farming (i.e. agriculture), viticulture und fruit-growing.

During DDR times the left half was gold, but in 1993 the historical silver was restored.
