An older (unofficial) variant of the arms was put on an earlier version of the flag: two stripes, yellow-blue, with the arms, plus the inscription "WENDEZELLE" in white.

Would you call the main charge on this shield an 'annulet' or a 'broken annulet'?
Christopher Southworth, 25 Aug 2007

Azure a linden emanating from an annulet, with cornears, all or.
The annulet (ring) symbolizes the original form of the settlement, which can still be discerned today. The lindentree shows that justice was administrated here for the village and its emvironment. The cornears represents agriculture. The colors blue and yellow signify that this place belonged for centuries to the Land of Brunswick.
(My translation after blazoning and explanation on this webpage.)
From this description I'd assume that it's simply an annulet.
Jarig Bakker, 25 Aug 2007

It is simply an annulet, a ring, stands for the character of the village, a Rundlingsdorf (german), a village where the farmsteads arraged as a ring.
The ring rounded a tree which stands for an "Erzkämmereigericht" till 1807, an old court.
