Presentation of Ecklingerode

The shield is parted per pale. At dexter in a silver field is a green tobacco plant with one red blossom. At sinister in a green field is a silver pale, issuant from base and carrying an image, displaying a holy scene, at its top.
The plant is reminding on the historical importance of growing and manufacturing tobacco in the past. Pale and image are a local point of interest.
