Meaning: the field 1 and 4 (fesses and cross, symbolize the relationship
with the former Grandduchy of Oldenburg.
Field 2 represents the city character. Lohne was founded as a consequence of the building of a church, so a religious building was chosen to represent the Christian character of the city.
Field 3 stands for the Lohner industry. The first industry was in feathers, so a swan's wing arises from a golden crown. The crown represents the wages (Lohn) and price of the citizens' ingenuity.
