Arms (crest) of Duchy of Auschwitz

Official blazon


The Duchy of Auschwitz (now Oświęcim Poland) was bought by the Polish Kings in 1457. After the Polish Division in 1772 the Duchy became part of Austria-Hungary. The eagle is either the old eagle of Silezia, or the eagle of Poland. The colours were changed to silver and blue in 1806.
