Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a blue field is a silver (=white) church masoned black. The church is shifted to the sinister side. Upon the dexter middle point of the shield is a golden (= yellow) inescutcheon showing a black rampant lion, tongued red. Upon the dexter chief point is a golden (=yellow) waxing moon crescent. Upon the sinister chief point is a golden (=yellow) 6-point star.
Meaning:
According to source the ensemble is known from seals since 1299. Moon, star, and fleur de lis (which had been replaced by the moon) seemed to be simply distinguishing marks.
