Hohes Kreuz Coat of Arms

The shield is blue, divided by a red cross fimbriated silver. In the centre of the cross is a silver 6-spokes wheel, emerging from wheel are four silver oak leaves, one upon each cross bar.
The four arms of the cross are probably representing the former municipalities of Bischhagen, Mengelrode, Siemerode and Streitholz, which merged on 1 January 1991. The wheel is representing the Archbishops of Mainz, the former rulers. The oak leaves a re alluding to the Eichsfeld region.
