Sławno/Schlawe was founded as a Polish village, but received its German name and city rights in 1317. The oldest seal of the city dates from the same time and shows only a sea-griffin (an eagle with a fish tail). The sea-griffin was the arms of the Swenzo-family that ruled the city.

A second seal, dating from the mid 14th century shows the sea-griffin with the Wipper river, and the chequered diamond. The meaning or origin of the latter is not known. All later seals show the same composition, which was placed in a shield in the 19th century.
