Wappen von Friesack

Official blazon

  • (de) In Silber auf grünem Boden ein blau gezinntes Tor mit geschlossenen goldenen Flügeln, beiderseits gehalten von einem blauen gezinnten Turm mit rotem goldbeknauften Kuppeldach auf einem schwarzen silbergefaßten doppelten Fensterbogen; dazwischen schwebend der goldbewehrte, mit goldenen Kleestengeln belegte rote brandenburgische Adler

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on April 14, 1994.

The arms are derived from the oldest known seal of the city, which dates from 1619. The seal already shows the castle with the eagle of Brandenburg. Friesack received city rights in 1327, but older seals are not known. All later seals show the same composition, except one seal from 1825. It showed a phoenix rising from his ashes. The meaning of this seal is not known.
The upper left image shows the arms as used in the end of the 19th century, the right one the present arms.
