Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a silver (=white) shield is a black statant stag with golden (= yellow) antlers and covered by a red blanket divided by a silver (=white) indented line. Upon the base are four black wavy fesses.
According to source the stag is alluding to the Bodendieke family, who died out with the Baltic branch in 19th century. Bodenteich was the origin of the family, who erected a castle in the 13th century and sold it to the dukes of Lüneburg in 14th century. The wavy fesses are alluding to lake Bodenteich, today a mere swamp but a real lake in the middle ages.
