The arms shown above show a golden lion in a blue field. These arms were shown by Hupp as the arms of the city, but they may never have been officially granted. The oldest seals of the city, which are known from the 14th century, show two towers with in between a small shield with a lion. Most likely this was the double-tailed crowned lion of Bohemia, as in 1370 the Niederlausitz region became part of the Kingdom of Bohemia. The lion probably was later changed into a normal uncrowned lion. The colours, gold and blue, are the colours of the Niederlausitz. In the 19th century the city still used the composition with the towers.
