Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
A nettle leaf is covering the complete shield. Above the leaf is golden (= yellow) in a green field, below the colours are countercharged. Both parts are divided per fess by a wavy line. Above the leaf is superimposed by the black silhouette of a flying sea eagle. Below the leaf is superimposed by a golden (=yellow) plough share flanked by two leaves of chestnut tree.
The chestnut leaves are representing a chestnut alleyway in municipality. The plough share is symbolizing agriculture. The eagle is representing the numerous birds of that species living in the area.
