Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
The lower half of the silver (=white) shield is mantled blue containing a silver (= white) leaf of water lily. Above in the dexter side is a carot in natural colour, in the sinister side is a red horn of chamois.
The horn is taken from the arms of the von Usedom kin. The carot is canting. The water lily is symbolizing the location on the shores of three lakes: Großer Jasmunder Bodden, Tetziner See and Rappiner See.
