Rockstedt Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Azure a goose issuant Or armed Gules, beneath Argent a bridge Gules masoned Sable, in base two barrulets Azure.
Rockstedt belonged to the Archbishopric of Magdeburg since 973 but was swapped the same year to the Benedictine Fulda Monastery. Later it became a part of the Principality of Schwarzburg-Sondershausen. Until 1950 there had been lots of geese in the village, which were herded together in the surrounding of the village. The barrulets are a representation of the local Helbe River. The bridge is crossing the river in the village.
