Eschershausen Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a lion passant Or, armed and tongued Azure, in base an initial "E" Or.
Meaning:
The existence of the first town seal is proven by prints since 1550, displaying a sinister facing lion passant over an initial, all without shield. The lion had been considered to be that one of the Lords of Homburg, who granted market rights in the 14th century. More likely it is the lion of the Welfen kin, as Eschershausen became a possession of the Dukes of Braunschweig in 1409. In the 17th century the lion was displayed crowned without initial. In the 20th century the old pattern was restored.
