Haynrode Coat of Arms

The shield is green; a silver, rampant lion,holding a golden mattock in his paws and wearing a golden helmet with silver and red decorations, among those seven bicoloured little flags.
The lion is taken from the arms of the Bültzingslöwen family, former local rulers. The mattock is representing the suffix "-rode", meaning that the village was established by forest clearance.
