Burkau Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a mount issuant of alternating stripes of Or and Azure superimposed by an irregular wavy line Argent, in chief three grain ears Or in fan.
The grain ears are representing the three municipalities Burkau proper, Uhyst at Taucher and Kleinhänchen, which formed current Burkau by a merger. The wavy line is a representation of the fountain of the Schwarze Elster, a river, in the municipality. The mount is symbolising the hilly Lusatian landscape.
