coat of arms
Blazon : "In silver over a red corrugated shield foot a narrow silver and a wide blue corrugated bar, above a green birch, on the right a red outwardly inclined peat baking pan, on the left a red peat quarry."
The red corrugated shield base of the coat of arms symbolizes the peat bog under the blue water areas, which stand for the large moor lakes and are characterized by the silver and blue wave bars. The peat baking pan and the peat scraper are historical tools used in wet peat extraction, which was carried out in the municipality until around 1960. Due to the geographic conditions, almost exclusively underwater peat extraction was carried out. The leafy downy birch with a green trunk is a typical tree of the area.
In addition to agriculture and local recreation, there are some businesses in the municipality.
