coat of arms
The coat of arms was approved on May 13, 1996 by the Magdeburg Regional Council.
Blazon : “Divided by Göpelschnitt; Field 1: in silver a green linden leaf; Field 2: a black hammer and an iron crossed in silver, covered with a chisel; Field 3: a silver ploughshare in green. "
Until then, Süplingen had no legitimate coat of arms or image seal. The municipality decided to include the following elements in the new coat of arms:
1.) A linden leaf, which shows the relation to the surrounding nature as a branch of the Flechtinger mountain range,
2.) the tool of the cutter, which symbolizes the stone quarrying that was carried out on site for a long time with hammer, iron and chisel,
3.) a ploughshare, which underlines the centuries of agriculture as the main economic branch of the population.
The depiction of the coat of arms elements took place in a shield divided by Göpelschnitt.
The coat of arms was designed by the Magdeburg municipal heraldist Jörg Mantzsch .
The flag of the municipality is green and white striped with the municipal coat of arms.
