Bad Freienwalde Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, an eradicated oak Vert, flanked by two inescutcheons Argent, charged with a 6-spokes wheel Gules each.
Meaning:
Freienwalde was first mentioned in 1316 and called a city since 1373/1375. The city became a spa in 1840. The oak tree is a representation of the 2nd part of the city's name "-walde". The inescutcheons are dislaying the family arms of the Lords of Uchtenhagen, being local rulers in the 14th century.
