coat of arms
Blazon : "On a green hill, this is covered with a silver burial chamber formed from a cover plate and three supporting stones, three green oak trees with golden fruits."
Around the village of Oeschebüttel with its three districts Springhoe, Wrack and Hollenbek, a total of 35 barrows and two urn cemeteries were found, which are assigned to the Younger Stone Age and the Bronze Age . The hill grave in the coat of arms stands for this prehistoric settlement of the municipality, the four stones of which are supposed to symbolize the village of Oeschebüttel with its three districts. The oaks indicate the wooded area in which Oeschebüttel is embedded.
