Bernterode Coat of Arms

The shield is green, displaying a lumberman, cleaving a stomp with a hammer and a black wedge, all other charges are silver. Above right is a silver branch of beech having five leaves.
The name of the municipality means something like "forest clearance made by Bernhard". The main ensemble is thus canting. The branch is referring to local beech groves.
