Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
A golden (=yellow) field is divided by a Markian chequered bar. Above the bar is a crescive red rose, seeded golden(=yellow) and barbed green. Below the bar is a light blue, wavy fess.
Meaning:
According to source the chequered bar reminds at the former rulers, the counts of Mark. The wavy line is symbolizing the small river Lenne. The rose is taken from the church seal of Wiblingwerde. Nachrodt-Wiblingwerde received arms in 1935; the rose is taken from the seal of the local parish, the red-white bar from the County of Mark, and the wavy bar symbolizes the river Lenne. The flag is white-red with the arms, used both as a flag for hoisting and as a banner
