The County Ober Lausitz (now in Saxony, Germany) was created in the territory of Bautzen, and became a possession of the Kings of Bohemia in 1329. In 1377 the name was changed into Duchy of Görlitz. On May 30, 1635 Ober and Nieder Lausitz were sold to the Dukes of Saxony. The Kings of Bohemia, and their successors, the Austrian Emperors, however, kept using the title of Margrave of Ober Lausitz.

The arms are identical to the arms of the city of Bautzen, which still uses the arms today. The arms are known as such since the 14th century.
