Schneverdingen City Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess. Above is a red fess in a silver (= white) field. Below is a silver (= white) heraldic rose seeded golden (= yellow) in a red field.
The coat of arms is based upon the arms of the Lords of Schneverdingen (Schneverding family), who died out in the 17th century. The arms have been conveyed by a tomb in St.John's church in Lüneburg and an old seal. The family in 1439 made a donation to its place of origin.
Sources: Stadler 1970, p.71 and 2(2) of Hauptsatzung of the City of Schneverdingen, version 3 November 2011

The coat of arms was approved by Oberpräsident of Prussian province of Hannover in 1937.
