Idstedt Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a golden(= yellow) shield above a base of blue and golden (= yellow) waves is a green yew tree having two stems. The tree is surrounded by six erratics of the same colour.
Meaning:
The yew tree is a canting element. The municipality's name is derived from "Eibenstätte", which is a location of yews, a sacred site, because yew trees for the old Germanic tribes had been a symbol of eternity. Edged by erratics this place might have been used for assaemblies (Thingstätte) too. The municipality is mentioned within the cadaster (Erdbuch) of Danish king Waldemar II in 1231 as capital of the Istatesyssel. This Syssel connected eight subdistricts (Harden) as an administrative unit in the South of the duchy of Schleswig. The colours also allude to the duchy. The yellow colour is also symbolizing the sandy moraines and the blue colour the Idstedt Lake.
