Coat of arms

The coat of arms of the district of Charlottenburg- Wilmersdorf was awarded on 4 September 2001 by the Senate of Berlin.

"Under silvery - blue split main shield, in three lilies in confused colors, in a Gold gezinntes blue castle gate with open black portcullis, the side towers with domes, the central building with a hipped roof that is sullied up with two averted flags, the right black - silver, the silver left red - divided. The side towers each filled with a shield: right in silver, a gold -winning and reinforced black eagle with golden clover stalks on the wings and chest covered with the golden monogram Fri, surmounted by a golden crown; left Gules, a jumping horse. The escutcheon is placed a red three-towered mural crown, whose central tower is occupied by the Berlin coat of arms. "

The coat of arms was created from the previous own coat of arms of the districts of Charlottenburg and Wilmersdorf. The lower panel of the split plate shows a floating blue gezinntes castle gate has a keyed black portcullis in the passage of the center building. This element of Charlottenburg has some historical details - the front tower symbolizes the Kingdom of Prussia with the laying on plate with Prussian eagle and the black and white flag, while the rear tower of the House of Hanover is, with the prancing horse and the red-white flag. The element of Charlottenburg Palace was enriched by the three blue - silver-colored lilies that were taken from the coat of arms of the district of Wilmersdorf - these elements refer here to the founder of Wilmersdorf from the 1802 extinct dynasty of Wilmersdorf. The mural crown is the unifying element of all districts in Berlin.
