Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per pale. The dexter side shows in a golden (= yellow) field a red tower topped by a triangular roof. The green field on the sinister side is divided by a silver (= white) wavy fess. Above is a golden (= yellow) 8-spokes wheel (formed like a steering wheel), below is a trefoil of the same colour.
According to source the tower is that one of the local church. The wavy fess is symbolizing the riches of water, the other elements are symbolizing the main lines of business: agriculture, agricultural technics and herding.
