Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is Vert, parted by a pall wavy Argent, above an aeroplane Argent in a cogwheel of the same, beneath at dexter a shepherd Argent, beneath at sinister a juniper tree Argent.
Shepherd and juniper are typical for the pre industrial life in Lüneburg Heather. Plane and cogwheel are probably alluding to Royal Airforce, which ran an air base near Faßberg.
