Wappen von Quickborn (Pinneberg)

Official blazon

  • (de) In Rot auf einem silbernen Brunnenpfahl, der aus der Mitte eines rechteckigen, gemauerten silbernen Brunnenbeckens hervorwächst und nach beiden Seiten einen Wasserstrahl im Bogen in das Becken sendet, eine sitzende goldene Eule in Vorderansicht, begleitet von zwei silbernen Seeblättern.


The arms were granted on April 19, 1958.

The arms show a fountain, which is derived from the name of the town, which originally meant living or fast flowing spring. The village was situated on one of the busiest trading routes in the area, on which cattle was herded from Jutland (Denmark) to Hamburg.

In the village the local guesthouse Uhlenkrog (owls-pub) was often used by travelers. The owl in the arms reminds of this guesthouse.

The two water-lily leaves symbolise the two lakes in the area.
