Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess wavy into silver (= white) over blue. Above is a black tree having ten oversized, green leaves. Below is a wreath of twelve golden (= yellow) 5-point stars.
Meaning:
The stem is symbolizing the subcounty, the leaves are symbolizing its municipalities: Grande, Grönwohld, Großensee, Hamfelde, Hohenfelde, Köthel, Lütjensee, Rausdorf, Trittau and Witzhave. The subcounty is congruent with the former parish and nearly congruent with the historical district (Amt) of Trittau and thus symbolizing continuity. The wreath means that the subcounty is devoted to the European spirit. The blue colour is symbolizing the numerous little lakes in the subcounty.
