The arms were officially adopted on June 10, 2009.
The lion in the first quarter refers to the former County of Meissen, and the lion of Meissen was also part of the arms of some of the older districts. The miner's tools refer to the mining in the region, and especially for the former Freiberg district. The three wavy bars are taken from the arms of the former Mittweida district. The three diamonds are taken from the arms of the former county of Leisnig, which was part of the (later) district of Döbeln.
