The coat of arms is white, outlined in black, with a symbolic representation of a landscape with a stylized tree. This emblem consists of a horizontal blue line, under which are two green angled lines (rising from bottom and when reaching the blue line turning left and right and exiting horizontally out). Above the blue line is another green one with an "island" in the middle with cut out part forming the silhouette of a tree. Above this one is another blue line which is arched around the tree silhouette.
