Kronshagen Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a silver (white) shield are three green trees ordered fessy. Their roots are superimposing the green base. The red chief is superimposed by a golden (= yellow) coronet.
The colours red and white are those of Holstein. Coronet and trees are canting elements. The cornet is erroneously representing "Kron-", which is interpreted as "crown", although in this case it should be crane. The trees are symbolizing "-hagen", which is a hague or grove. They are also alluding to the green environment. The inhabitants are denoting the municipality as a garden city. Kronshagen is just west of Kiel, enclosed by the city from three sides, and known as a better quarter and sometimes erroneously considered to be a suburb of Kiel.
