The origin of the arms is not quite clear. It has been speculated that the arms are derived from the Polish Grzymala family. The oldest use of the arms with a tower and a bird dates from 1600, on the oldest known seal of the city. The bird, however, was shown more like a goose. Only later the bird changed into a heron or a stork as in the present arms. The arms have not significantly changed since, only slightly in he colours and in the size and shape of the bird.
