Badendorf Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per bend sinister into green over gold (= yellow). Above right is a silver (= white) horse forcene. Below left is a black inescutcheon bearing a silver (= white) cross fleury.
Meaning:
The green colour is symbolizing nature and environment. The yellow colour is symbolizing agriculture, the sun and the fields of rape and grain. The bend is symbolizing the changes after WW2. Before agriculture was the predominant business line, afterwards rental of estates, horse breeding and equitation gained more and more importance, which is also symbolized by the horse. The inescutcheon is alluding to the knight Bado. Badendorf means indeed Bado's village. Bado was a locutor of the counts of Schauenburg. Around 1150 he peopled the village with German settlers, after the Slavic inhabitants had been expelled. The cross fleury is alluding to the monastery in Reinbek. The village had been ruled by the monastery for 280 years.
