coat of arms
Blazon : “Divided by red, silver and blue by Göpelschnitt; in front a silver ear, behind a red acorn, below a silver mill wheel. "
The community colors are white and red.
These municipality colors were chosen because in the Middle Ages the municipality belonged to the County of Lindau , which had these colors. The ear of wheat stands for agriculture, which has been the town's livelihood since the earliest times. The acorn illustrates the wealth of forest, especially mixed forest; two thirds of the district are forested and Dobritz currently has the strongest and oldest oak in the Zerbst district. There was also a cutting mill in Dobritz that was operated by water power, modernized after the First World War and shut down after the Second World War . The mill wheel symbolizes the utilization of the raw material wood. The blue background indicates the abundance of water: 6 ponds are in the area. Dobritz is located in the drinking water catchment area of the same name and as such will continue to gain in importance for the surrounding area in the future.
The coat of arms was designed by the Heraldic Society "Black Lion" Leipzig. In 2012, the municipal heraldist Jörg Mantzsch carried out a redesign according to the blazon in consultation with the local mayor and the state archives of Saxony-Anhalt.
