Emleben Coat of Arms

Shield Azure, a woman issuant Or, holding a woad plant of the same by her right hand and mortising her left arm against her hip. In sinsiter chief in a white triangle three bendlets wavy Azure.
The pattern appeared first on a local seal from 1700. According to a legend the village was founded by a Lady Emilia, which may be the meaning of the figure on the seal. Cultivation of woad (Latin: Isatis tinctoria) and production of its blue colour had been of great importance in the past. The upper left corner refers to the many creeks and streams in the municipality.
