adopted 3 Mar 1951
From Ralf Hartemink's International
Civic Arms website: The arms were granted in 1951 and show a city wall,
to characterise the city character of Salzgitter. The two wheat-ears and
the blast furnace symbolise the agriculture and industry respectively.
The small shield shows in the lower half some miner's tools, symbol for
the important mining in the area. The two salt hooks in the upper half
are derived from the old arms and seals of the city.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1971.
