Origin/meaning

The arms are a combination of a city gate and the lion of the Counts of Eberstein. The latter ruled the city in the 15th century. The arms first appear on a seal from the early 17th century, and have not changed until 1945.
Before 1600 the city used completely different compositions on its seals. The oldest seals, from the early 15th century, show a torso of a man, most likely a bishop of Kammin, as the city belonged to the diocese of Kammin and the bishops had granted the city rights. Around 1600 a seal was made, showing a pentagram as the only symbol, its meaning unknown
