Coat of armsEdit
|The cross in the top left and bottom right quarters of the coat of arms is the symbols of the diocese of Merseburg. The horizontal red-and-white bars in the other two quarters are the symbol of the Lords of Querfurt. The coat of arms thus combines the symbols of the two precursor districts.|
