Rückersdorf Coat of Arms

Shield parted per chevron abased; beneath Azure a Paschal Lamb statant Argent; above issuant from chevron's peak a linden Vert.
Meaning:
The Paschal lamb is usually an attribute of St. John the Baptist. Here it has an unusual labarum, not displaying the cross but a red-.white bicolour with swallow tail. According to the administration of the subcounty Rückersdorf is its only municipality having proper symbols. The flag had been rejected by the authorities, as its colours don't match the tinctures of the arms. But the inhabitants insisted and finally a flag was approved on 13 July 2017 by the main State Archive of Brandenburg (LHA).
