Official blazon


The arms were granted on April 26, 1792 and again on March 8, 1997.

The original arms were granted at the same time as the city rights, by Grand-Duke Stanislaus Augustus. The arms showed a man weighing flax, as the region was a major flax producer and exporter. Later the same year the arms and city rights were abolished. Only in 1997 the historical arms were restored.
