The silver bar represents the salt road that used to run through the town. The ring symbolizes a Slavic castle in the district of Scharstorf, the ring wall of which is still clearly visible today. The four equal parts represent the four districts of Freudenholm, Scharstorf, Schellhorn and Sophienhof. The horn itself represents the name of the community, which in Middle Low German means a small cornucopia.
