Betzendorf Coat of Arms

Shield Vert, a church tower Argent, in base four grain ears Or tied of the same.
Meaning:
The tower belongs to the local parish church, dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul. The grain ears probably are representing the four other villages belonging to Betzendorf as follows: Drögennindorf, Glüsingen, Tellmer and Holtdorf. The flag colours are taken probably from the flag of Lower Saxony, which are the same as those of entire Germany, although the shade of yellow here is different.
