Coat of arms

The coat of arms was approved on 19 August 1965 the President Brunswick administration.

The Silver Wolf, who then jumps in the upper half of the green shield Beierstedter coat of arms, comes just as the red lily in the lower silver box from the arms of the extinct family of Brunswick citizens Beierstedt. The wolf in its coat of arms could, however - so that's not visible - have been a dog. Anyway, it was defined in the municipal coat of arms as a wolf. The lily was in the Civil silver crest in red; to distinguish it from the latter and to improve the color balance of the colors have been changed.

The City Council adopted the coat of arms on September 16, 1964. Coat of arms was designed by the heraldist Philipp Schmidt.
