Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a nettle leaf Argent, charged with an inescutcheon Gules, displaying a chalice Or and a twisting serpent Or.
Meaning:
Chalice and serpent (blazon mentions however a Rod of Asclepius, which it is definitely not) are alluding to the fact that Bad Nenndorf is a spa. The nettle leaf is taken from the arms of the Counts of Schaumburg, the former rulers.
The arms were approved in 1951 by Minister of Interior of Lower Saxony.

Haste Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Or a roe deer salient Sable, beneath Gules a nettle leaf Argent superimposed by three nails in pall of the same, meeting in the centre of the leaf.
Meaning:
The nettle leaf with nails is the version, taken from the arms of former Grafschaft Schaumburg County. It is that part, which was gained by Hesse at the end of the 30-Years-War in 1648. The roe deer is alluding to the old name of the municipality in 1612, which was "auf der Hast" (= on the chase).
