Boostedt Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Between two golden beech leaves in a blue shield is a silver (= white) bend sinister, superimposed by nine red bricks. The 1st and the last brick disappear outside the shield's edge.
Meaning:
The nine bricks are symbolizing the nine brickyards, that existed in the village in 1737. Manufacturing of bricks had been an important, traditional business line in Boostedt. The bend is symbolizing the "Via Regia", i.e. the king's highway, which released economic pulses and on the other hand gave twice the opportunity of plundering during the 30-Years-War by troops marching through the village. The leaves are symbolizing the Boostedter Berge, a recreation area.

The flag was approved on 20 June 1986. The coat of arms was approved on 31 July 1969. The artist is Wilhelm Horst Lippert from Brunsbüttel.
