The Juechter - coat of arms


In the right coat of arms half (from the observer) are 1 1/2 roses. Wildeshausen, that the Oldenburger count controlled, had the rose as city-arms. Therefore the Juchthere in knight services of the Oldenburger count had the rose on its sign and family seal.

In the Middle Ages it was usual that the princes "lent" knights to friendly regents occasionally. The neighbouring counts von Tecklenburg had a sea-rose-leaf in their coat of arms. Probably one or several Juchthere did there services and added the sea-rose-leaf to their rose.
