Hage Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess into blue over gold (= yellow). Above is a golden (= yellow) demi-lion issuant, armed and tongued red. Below is a blue stake dam, a fence.
Meaning:
Since the 14th century a castle of the local Hinkena kin was in the village. The castle was donated to the local church in 1466. Since 1664 Hage was denoted as a market town. The lion is taken from the arms of the Hinkena kin. The fence is a canting element, meaning "hague".

The coat of arms was approved in 1959 by Regierungspräsident Aurich.

Halbemond Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Azure, a waxing crescent Or.
Meaning:
The municipality's name means "half moon", which is probably derived from Eastern Frisian Halvemaanland (German: Halbes Allmendeland; English: half common land) and afterwards lost in translation. Others say, the name is based on the shape of the municipality like a crescent.
