[Neuharlingersiel coat of arms] image from this site.

The arms of Neuharlingersiel show a two-masted sailing ship on a blue background. The image of the schooner reminds of the large sailing ships which had once their base here and shows the position of Neuharlingersiel on the Northsea-coast. The colors blue and gold underline that the municipality is part of the Samtgemeinde Esens.
