Coat of Arms (version 1939):

Meaning:
The oldest town seal from the 17th century with prints from the 18th century displayed a sinister facing dove on a hill with a branch in its beak. The name of the town was erroneously derived from "Duve" (= dove) and the bird was considered to be canting. The kind of branch in beak and the direction of the dove changed several times. The rose according to Ralf Hartemink was added in 1939 and was taken from the arms of the Lords of Duingen, whose family arms displayed three roses.
The former arms were approved in 1939 by Oberpräsident of Prussian Hannover Province.
