Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Shield parted per chevron stepped, above Gules a label Argent, beneath Argent a barrulet wavy Azure.
The label is taken from the Von Lodere family arms. The family had several possessions in the region. The 5 hangers symbolise the five municipalities forming at the time Laer comprehensive municipality: Westerwiede, Hardensetten, Winkelsetten, Müschen and Laer proper. The chevron is representing the church tower in Bad Laer. The blue bend symbolises the salty waters that made the village a spa. Silver and red are also the historical colours of the Osnabrück Region. The arms were approved in 1966.
