Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on July 20, 1995.

The first quarter of the arms shows the arms of the Counts of Mansfeld, parts also appeared in the arms of Mansfelder Gebirgs- and Seekreis and Hettstedt. The first and fourth sub-quarter are the arms of Querfurt, the second and third are the old arms of the county Mansfeld. The arms were combined after Burchhard von Querfurt became Count of Mansfeld.

The miner's tools and the fish are taken from the arms of the Mansfelder Seekreis and symbolise the mining and the iron works.

The fish represents the lakes and brooks, the tree the many woods in the county.
