Sickerode Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per fess. Above are two golden mattocks in saltire in a green field. Beneath are eight black lozenges, ordered 5:3, in a golden field.
The mattocks are representing the suffix "-rode" and thus alluding to former forest clearances. The lozenges are referring to the nickname of the local people, being called "grindstones".
