Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is Vert, parted by a pall wavy Argent, above an aeroplane Argent in a cogwheel of the same, beneath at dexter a shepherd Argent, beneath at sinister a juniper tree Argent.
Meaning:
Shepherd and juniper are typical for the pre industrial life in Lüneburg Heather. Plane and cogwheel are probably alluding to Royal Airforce, which ran an air base near Faßberg.
