The upper left arms show the non-official arms used by the Lebus district until 1937.

The two boat hooks are the symbol of St. Adalbaert, patron saint of the cathedral of Lebus, and also used by the diocese of Lebus.

Coat of arms (crest) of Seelow (kreis)

In September 1937 the above arms were adopted. The two hooks remained, but now a prehistoric spear was added. The spear was found in the early 20th century. The golden shield symbolised the fertile fields in the district. The arms were used until 1945.

From 1945-1952 the pre 1937 arms were used again, but all use was abolished in 1952. In 1991 the district again adopted the pre-1937 arms, but these were never officially granted. The arms remained in use until 1993.
