Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Shield Sable; a bendy abbott's crozier superimposed by a peat spade sinister bendy, both Argent, all quarters bear charges Or: an acorn (chief), a plough share (base) and a 6-point mullet (dexter and sinister).
The crozier is referring to former Coldinne monastery, the spade to the cultivation and depletion of peat. The mullets are taken from the arms of Norden city, because the municipality is located in the Norderland, i.e. the region around Norden city. The acorn is symbolising the afforestation of the marshes, especially the Berumfehn Forest, the plough share is symbolising the rural character of the municipality
