Haar Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a silver shield are two green trees on a basement of the same colour. Between the trees is an impending golden (= yellow) axe shafted black.
The trees are canting elements. The name of the municipality denotes a clear forest. The axe is symbolizing that the first settlement was made by forest clearances in the Middle Ages.
