Origin/meaning

Posen is an area in Western Poland, which became part of Prussia in 1779-1793, in 1807 it became a part of French-controlled Warsaw Duchy, to return to Prussian rule in 1815. Posen used to be a official German name used until 1918; the historical Polish name for the province is Wielkopolska (Greater Poland) - Grosspolen in German.

In 1813 part of the area became Russian after the division of Poland and redefinition of the borders. The arms show the Prussian eagle with the arms of Wielkopolska as an escutcheon.

The supporters, crown and helmet are those used in all Prussian provinces and could be used at wish.
