Schachtebich Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per fess wavy. Above in a red field is a golden mitre, garnished by five torteaux and lined black, flanked by two silver bulrushes seeded black. Beneath in a blue field is a silver fish. Both fields are separated by a silver barrulet wavy.
Bullrushes, fish and barrulet wavy are symbolizing the swamps around the village and the local village pond as well. The mitre is representing St. Magnus, the local patron saint.
