coat of arms

Blazon : "Split by gold and blue, in front a green ash leaf with seven leaflets, behind two piles of falling silver swans."

Reason: The shield division is based on the design of the seal of the former community Schönwalde, which has been proven since 1946 at the latest and was apparently inspired by the coat of arms of the Osthavelland district created in 1935 . Both the coat of arms of Osthavelland and the seal of Schönwalde showed two swans falling in stakes in the split shield in the rear field. The swans embody the tradition in which the community Schönwalde-Glien stands and refer to their territorial affiliation. The blue of the rear field indicates the location of the municipality in the water-rich Luch. The gold in the front field refers to the ground moraine plate Ländchen Glien, whose name comes from Elbe Slavonic and means “clay”. It thus speaks for the second member of the community name, "Glien". The green ash leaf with the seven leaflets symbolizes the community of the seven districts in the municipality. Ash trees, together with other tree species from floodplain, swamp and lowland forests, form rich stands in the Havelländisches Luch, which was historically also known as the Gliener Luch and which occupies the largest part of the community. Ash trees are also popular avenue trees that line several sections of the connecting roads between the districts. The paper also speaks for the first member of the community name, "Schönwalde".

The coat of arms was designed by Christian Gering from Schönwalde-Dorf. In a public survey in February 2004, 43% of the participating citizens of the municipality decided in favor of the draft, which was unanimously approved by the municipal council in its meeting on March 18, 2004.

The Ministry of the Interior of Brandenburg approved the coat of arms on October 29, 2004.

Coats of arms of the districts

The coats of arms of the districts correspond to the coats of arms of the formerly independent municipalities of the office Schönwalde-Glien (Paaren im Glien, Pausin, Perwenitz, Schönwalde, Wansdorf) as well as the former municipality Grünefeld of the office Nauen-Land. For this reason, the districts of Schönwalde-Dorf and Schönwalde-Siedlung, formed from the former municipality of Schönwalde, have the same coat of arms.

The coat of arms of Grünefeld was designed by the marketing expert and heraldist Frank Diemar from Erfurt, the coats of arms of the other places by the landscape planner and former member of the Schönwalde municipal council, Christian Gering. The coat of arms of Schönwalde was recreated in 1994 on the basis of seal images from the 1940s. The drawing of the swans comes from the graphic artist Lutz Lüders from Schönwalde-Siedlung, who died in 2004.
