Coat of Arms (2005-2009)

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess wavy. Above in a golden ( = yellow) field is a black, statant bull. Below in a blue field are all in golden (= yellow) colour a hatch and a lance crossed per saltire with a sugar beet in each quarter.
The bull is taken from the arms of von Plessen kin, owners of the village from 1336 to 1945. The hatch is symbolizing forest clearance by German settlers in the early middle ages. The lance is symbolizing St. Thomas, the local patron saint, who gave the village the name. (Damshagen is derived from Thomashagen.) The beets are smbolizing agriculture and the wavy line is symbolizing a local creek.
