Meaning:
The arms are based on the old seal of Lilienthal subcounty (German: Amt). These in turn were based on the arms of the Cistercian nunnery, founded in 1232 by Gerard von der Lippe, Archbishop of Bremen. St. Mary is the patron saint of the nunnery, the lilies are canting as well as a symbol of St. Mary.
The arms were approved in 1956 by Minister of Interior of Lower Saxony.
