coat of arms

Blazon : "A silver ax and a silver clearing hoe crossed diagonally in green over a silver oak stump with four budding leaves."

The overall content of the coat of arms is related to the place name, so the coat of arms is a "speaking" or "speaking" one. The ax , the clearing hoe and the oak stump demonstrate, as it were, that the place, as the name suggests, was created by clearing formerly forested areas, as the basis for fertile farmland and rural economy.
