Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a blue field above blue waves is a golden (= yellow) castle, masoned black. The castle has a wall and three embattled towers, topped by triangular red roofs, each of them topped by a golden (=yellow) ball. The wall is superimposed by a silver (=white) inescutcheon showing a red eagle, armed and tongued golden.
The inescutcheon is symbolizing the Electors of Brandenburg, the former rulers. The castle is symbolizing the fortification of the city in former days and the city rights. The waves are symbolizing waters and swamps formerly surrounding the city.
