Origin/meaning

The arms of Dresden already appear on the seal of the city in 1309.

The seal may be older as Dresden received city rights already in the early 13th century. The arms have ever since been used by the city. From the 16th century the city often used a helmet and mantling, but these were abolished in 1926. The arms show the lion of Meissen and the pales of Landsberg. The original pales were blue, but the colour was likely changed to distinguish the arms from the Counts of Meissen-Landsberg and the city of Leipzig.
