Wappen von Laboe/Arms (crest) of Laboe
Official blazon
German In Blau über silbernen Wellen im Schildfuß ein auffliegender, rot bewehrter silberner Schwan, links begleitet von einem gestürzten (d.h. mit den Haken nach oben gekehrten) goldenen Anker.
English blazon wanted


The arms were officially granted on October 8, 1959.

The swan is used as a canting element, as the name Laboe is derived from a Slavic word, probably meaning Place (or Bay) of swans. The anchor is added as a symbol for the importance of shipping in the municipality. It also refers to the memorial of the victims of the Imperial Navy during the Fist World War in the town.
