Shield Argent, a bend sinister wavy Azure, charged with a bendlet sinister embattled-counterembattled Or (with 15 embattlements); in dexter chief a heraldic rose Gules, seeded Or and barbed Vert; in sinister base an embattled castle Gules with port Or and window sable.
The bend wavy is representing the name giving Haune creek. The number of embattlements is symbolising the 15 villages of Haunetal. The castle is representing the ruined castle of Altwehrda. The rose is taken from the arms of the Counts of Truembach, former owners of the castle.
