coat of arms
Blazon : “Divided by green and silver. Above a silver gatehouse with a three-story middle section and one-story side wings, below two blue trout facing each other. "
Up until 1867, Sarlhusen was both a noble estate and a farming village that was under the rule of this estate. The gatehouse depicted in the coat of arms was built during the heyday of the estate in the 17th century and has remained unchanged to this day. This representative structural testimony represents the time of the lordship in Sarlhusen and thus the past of the place in general. The trout in the lower half of the coat of arms refer to trout farming, which was documented as early as the middle of the 19th century. This branch of industry has remained a source of income for the residents up to the present day. The green shield color highlights the agricultural orientation of the municipality. The silver color of the lower half of the shield emphasizes the region's wealth of dammed fish ponds and natural flowing waters that have always been valued as trout streams.
The local poet and director of the trade school in Kiel Jürgen Friedrich Ahrens (1834–1914) was born in Sarlhusen.
