Wappen von Marklohe/Arms (crest) of Marklohe

The arms were officially granted on May 3, 1973.

The crossed horse heads are a typical gable ornament of Niedersachsen farmhouses and indicate the location of the community in Niedersachsen.

The golden boulder is supposed to remind of the old Thingstätte, (sacred) places where the emissaries of all Saxon districts met annually for deliberations.

The activities of the early medieval missionary St. Lebuinus in Marklohe and the existence of a late medieval archdeaconate are symbolized by the black cross with which the boulder is covered. The black sword indicates that in Marklohe not only the church but also secular power was represented.
