Meersburg developed around the castle of the Bishops of Konstanz and received city rights in 1299. The oldest seal is known since the early 14th century and shows a castle (Burg) on a sea (Meer), the latter symbolising the Bodensee lake. From 1500 onwards the composition is known as the arms of the city. Even though the composition has not changed, the shape and size of the castle has changed considerably during the centuries.
