Gerterode Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per pall reverse, above right a silver branch of oak with three leaves and two acorns in a red field; above left a blue chalice in a silver field; beneath a silver watermill's wheel in a blue field.
The branch is referring to local oak groves. The chalice to a glas kiln, which had been here since the 16th century. The wheel is reminding on three former watermills in the municipality.
