coat of arms
Blazon : "In gold a raised green mountain, in it under three silver leaves an openwork narrow silver wavy bar, underneath a golden amulet."
The three leaves symbolize the southern district of Föhrden, as huge beeches and oaks used to stand here. The amulet is supposed to remind of Wiebeke Kruse, a daughter of the community, and symbolizes the district of Barl.
Wiebeke Kruse was the wife of the Danish King Christian IV, who she met around 1625 in nearby Bad Bramstedt . She was hired by him as a teacher. Later she became his lover and they got married.
