Wiesent Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a fleur-de-lis Or, chief Argent charged with three sinister facing ravens statant Sable.
The ravens are taken from the arms of the Lintelo family, who owned the Lordship of Wiesent from 1634 until 1705. The family also built the local castle. The fleur-de-lis is an attribute of St. Mary, local patron saint as Our Lady of Assumption.
