coat of arms

Blazon : “Divided by gold and blue. Above is a green alder leaf between a green fruit cluster on the right and a green inflorescence on the left, below a striding silver duck with a golden beak and red feet. "

The figures on the municipal coat of arms , alder and duck , both refer to the name of the municipality. The choice of the figure for the upper half of the coat of arms is based on the Low German (Eller, Ellerboom) and Danish (el, elle) form of denomination of the alder, while the lower half takes that proposed by Pastor J. R. F. Augustiny from Hollingstedt in his chronicle of the parish of Hollingstedt in 1852 Derivation of the place name from "Elling" or "Alling" as a Danish name for little duck. According to the chronicler's news, wild ducks were very widespread as breeding birds on the Rheider Au, which touched the municipality . The alder is still the typical tree species for the municipality today, which is not only frequently found in the lowland area of ​​the Rheider Au, but has recently also been widely used as a crook .


The municipality is predominantly agricultural.


In addition to a volunteer fire brigade and the sports club, Ellingstedt also has a rifle guild, a women's choir, a theater group and the "Ellingstedt-then" working group. The German Red Cross (DRK) is also actively represented in town.
