Weiding Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter parted per fess, above Azure a fleur-de-lis Argent, below Or a fess Azure; at sinister Argent on mount issuant Vert a willow of the same with trunk Sable.
The fleur-de-lis is an attribute of St. Mary, the local patron saint. The blue fess on a golden field is representing the former municipality of Dalking, which had been incorporated in 1978. It also displays the arms of the Nothafft kin, who owned estates in that village. The willow (German: Weide) is canting.
