Coat of Arms

The shield is Gules with base Vert, charged with a barrulet wavy Argent, issuant from base a gate Argent with two pillars, the dexter one charged with a black logo, the sinister one with a heraldic rose Gules seeded Or and barbed Vert, between the pillars is a forged door Or. In chief is an inescutcheon Or semy of heartlets Gules and charged with a lion rampant Azure, armed and tongued Gules.
Though having no idea about the gate, the barrulet wavy is representing little Aller River. The inescutcheon is referring to the Welfen kin, the former rulers.
