Itzstedt Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield has a blue base topped by a silver (= white) bow wavy. Above the shield is divided per pale. The dexter side is displaying a green double-oak issuant in a silver (= white) field. The sinister side is displaying a golden (= yellow) spade with broken shaft in a red field.
Meaning:
The double-oak is a symbol of the undissolvable union of Holstein and Schleswig after the insurrection of 1848, also alluding to the merging of the historical core east of federal road B432 with the new settlements west of the road. The broken spade is symbolizing the change of the swamps in the east into a nature protection area in the 20th century. The bow is alluding to a local watershed. The blue base is symbolizing Itzstedter See, a local lake.

Kayhude Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The golden (= yellow) shield is divided by a broad, blue fess wavy, superimposed by a golden (= yellow), sinister facing boat having a black freight of peat bricks. Below the fess are two black barrulets wavy and a black tool (German: Torfmesser).
Meaning:
All elements have something to do with the digging of peat, which had been the most important business line in the past. The digged peat up to the 19th century was shipped to Hamburg by boats on the Alster River, which is crossing the municipality.
