Baltrum Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted in 1960 and show the local bell-tower, which has been the symbol of the island for more than 150 years. The spurs are taken from the arms of Norden. The colours symbolise sand and water.
