Leese Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a bend sinister wavy Argent, in dexter chief a postal horn Or, in sinister base an urn Or.
Meaning:
The bend wavy is symbolising Weser River, which has been of great importance due to the development of the village. The urn in the lower half is symbolising the inhabitation of the area since times immemorial, as pre-historic excavations have indicated. The horn is symbolising the local post station, founded in 1684. The station was important, as it was on the junction of several postal routes. The red and golden colours are derived from the colours of the Dukes of Braunschweig, as the village belonged since 1582 to the Duchy of Braunschweig.
The arms were approved on 12 October 1982.

Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale, on the line of partition an anchor parted per pale into Argent and Azure, at dexter Gules a round tower Argent with cone roof, oriel and embattled wall, at sinister Or a bear paw Sable armed Gules.
Meaning:
The town used a seal, displaying a castle with two towers and a bear paw, in the 15th century. The latter is taken from the arms of the Counts of Hoya, local rulers since the 14th century, who made Stolzenau their seat in 1525. Stolzenau protected the borders of the county and was a common dominion of both branches of the Counts of Hoya. Otto Hupp's version from 1925 was based on the first seal with prints since 1459. The anchor was added later, in order to stress the importance of shipping on Weser River. Stolzenau is seat of Mittelweser Comprehensive Municipality.
