Coat of armsEdit
The coat of arms of Gemeinde Rüdersdorf bei Berlin shows a rooted green lime tree with two red shields on its side. The shield towards the left of the trunk shows the silver hammer and pick as a symbol for the limestone quarrying: An industry which has shaped this municipality and is still present to this day. On the right side of the trunk, the shield symbolizes a silver turnip which represents the local agriculture. Both industries have been implanted back in the 13th century by the monks of the Zinna Abbey.
