Pölzig Coat of Arms

Shield quartered, 1st and 4th quarter Azure, a winged embowed fish haurient Argent, 2nd and 3rd quarter Argent a pall reversed Gules flanked by 15 squares Sable in the 2nd quarter and 12 in the 3rd quarter, in centre an inescutcheon Or charged with three crescents Argent, waxing, waning and recumbent reversed.
Meaning:
The municipal arms are basically those of the Counts of Pölzig and Bayersdorf, with the inescutcheon in centre displaying the family arms of the Barons von Hanstein, which displayed however black crescents. The County of Pölzig had been a tiny territory between Reuß and Sachsen-Altenburg. The comital arms had an additional crest and were topped by a count's coronet or a baron's coronet. The quarters probably are referring to Pölzig proper and Bayersdorf.
In 1826 Baron Alexander of Hanstein (1804-1884) from Coburg established the comital branch of the Hanstein kin. The line became extinct in 1903. He had a love affair with Duchess Louise of Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg, the consort of Duke Ernst. After she had been divorced in 1826, she married Alexander of Hanstein, who was then elevated to a Count of Pölzig, in order to become a suitable consort of the duchess.
