Sollwitt Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided by a blue bend sinister wavy, which is superimposed by a golden (= yellow) sinister bend wavy. Above in a silver (= white) field is a green linden tree. Below in a golden (= yellow) field is a black axe of stone without handle.
Meaning:
The nowadays municipality has two settlement cores, Sollwitt proper and Pobüll. The tree is symbolizing the Pobüll Forest. The axe, perhaps from 3000 BC, is symbolizing Sollwitt. The axe had been found by a local woman in the 70ies of the 20th century. The blue wavy lines are symbolizing the drainage of the swamps of Pobüll. The yellow colour in between the blue lines is symbolizing, that the swamp belongs to Sollwitt proper.
