coat of arms

The coat of arms was approved on November 17, 1998 by the Magdeburg Regional Council.

Blazon : "In silver on a green three-mountain, a nine-jet blue fountain between two facing green oaks with two black fruits each."

The village of Wieglitz lies on the Flechtinger ridge ; The Wieglitz Mountains, in which a spring once gushed - the so-called Klare Grete fall within its boundaries . It poured between the numerous oak trees around them. Although this source has dried up today, it was the wish and resolution of the municipality to include the above-mentioned events in the municipality's coat of arms. This was realized in a stylized form in accordance with heraldic customs. The Dreiberg symbolizes the Flechtinger mountain range or the Wieglitzer mountains. An oak grows to the right and left of the Dreiberg, which also points to the densely wooded Flechtinger ridge. The Klare Grete was finally shown as a blue Spring.

The former municipality colors are green - silver (white).

The coat of arms was designed by the municipal heraldist Jörg Mantzsch .


The flag is green and white striped with the coat of arms of the municipality.
