City Coat of Arms - the rose[edit]

I'm not sure that the statement that "the rose stands for the nature in the southern half of the district" is correct. I understood that the rose of the coat of arms refers to the world famous 'Rose of Hildesheim' - I quote from the Hildesheim page: "The "Thousand-Year-Old Rosebush" is a reputedly 1,000 years old dog rose bush, allegedly the world's oldest living rose. It continues to flourish on the wall of the St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral apse." Does anyone know otherwise? Andywebby (talk) 23:47, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
