Leinefelde-Worbis Coat of Arms

It is a silver shield, charged with an embattled, red pale; charged with a silver pallet wavy, parted thrice per pale wavy.
Meaning:
The colours red and white (= silver) are those of the Electorate and Archbishopric of Mainz, to which the Eichsfeld region belonged. The pallet wavy is symbolizing the little rivers Wipper in the East and Leine in the West of the city. The former has its fountain in Worbis, the latter in Leinefelde and is thus the name giver of Leinefelde. The embattled pale is symbolizing the local castles Bodenstein and Scharfenstein.
