The shield is parted per fess. Above in a silver field is a red demi-lion issuant, holding a paly, blue key in his forepaws. Beneath in a red field a stepped, silver gable, charged with a blue boathook.
Meaning:
The pattern was already known from seals of the local court in Neuhaus Subcounty (Amt). The key is alluding to the Archbishopric of Bremen, the lion probably a modification of that one of the Welfen-kin. In 1404 Archbishop Otto of Braunschweig established the castle Neuenburg in a loop of Oste River. In 1502 the market town gained customs facilities. The gable is referring to Oste River, the hook is alluding to shipping traffic on the rivers Oste and Aue.
