Coat of arms The red eagle in the left of the coat of arms is the symbol of Brandenburg, as historically the Altmark was part of Brandenburg. It also stands for the district Havelland. The golden trefoil with three oak leaves symbolizes the old district of Stendal, and is taken from the coat of arms of the family of Bismarck. The three golden diamonds on black ground come from the coat of arms of the dukes of Osterburg, representing the former district Osterburg.
