Mecklenburgische Seenplatte County Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Or a demi bull's head Sable, crowned Or, armed Argent, tongued Gules and couped per pale; at sinister parted per fess wavy, above Argent a griffin rampant Gules armed Or, beneath Azure seven barrulets wavy Argent.
Meaning:
The demi bull' head is a differentiation of the family arms of the Lords of Werle, to whom the biggest part of the county historically belonged. It is also part of the arms of the three predecessors of the county. The griffin is symbolising that minor parts of the current county belonged to the Dukes of Pommern. The barrulets wavy are symbolising the riches of waters and the seven cities of Altentreptow, Demmin, Malchin, Neubrandenburg, Neustrelitz, Röbel und Waren.

[Demmin County flag] 3:5, image by Stefan Schwoon, 27 Nov 2002 modified by Klaus-Michael Schneider

According to former County website: " the flag of Demmin County has seven horizontal stripes of different width in the colours blue-yellow-red-white-red-yellow-blue. The blue stripes are 1/5 each, the yellow stripes 1/4 each, the red stripes 1/30 each and the white stripe 1/15 of the flag's heighth. The County coat-of-arms spans the red and the yellow stripes. The colours of the County flag combine the colours of the two State's regions of Mecklenburg (red-yellow-blue) and Vorpommern (blue-white), to reflect the fact that the County Demmin lies partially in Mecklenburg and partially in Vorpommern."

Demmin County Coat of Arms

[Demmin County arms] image from the former Demmin County Website.

Shield parted per pale; at dexter parted per fess, above Or a bull's head caboshed Sable, crowned Or, armed Argent and tongued Gules; beneath parted per fess, there above Gules a demi-griffin issuant Argent, there beneath chequered of Or and Azure; at sinister Azure an impending castle Argent with port and windows Azure, a portcullis Argent, an embattled tower with cone roof, on top superimposed by a fleur de lis Argent.
Meaning:
The bull's head is taken from the arms of the Lords of Werle and is representing the former Malchin County. Griffin and chequered field display the arms of the Duchy of Pommern-Wolgast and are representing the former counties of Demmin and Altentreptow. The tower with fleur de lis is a modification of the Demmin city arms. It is also referring to the many Medieval houses and weir plans made of red bricks, which is typical for Northern Germany. The open gate is symbolising hospitality.

Mecklenburg-Strelitz County Coat of Arms

[Mecklenburg-Strelitz former County arms] image located by Jens Pattke, 7 Jan 2012

Shield parted per pale; at dexter Azure, issuant from base an embattled wall Argent masoned Sable, issuant from wall an embattled tower of the same with cone roof; at sinister parted per fess, above Or a bull's head caboshed Sable armed Argent and tongued Gules, beneath Gules a Maltese cross Argent.
Meaning:
In 1236 Duke Wartislaw III of Pommern ceded the lordships of Stargard and Beseritz to the Margraves Johann I and Otto III of Brandenburg by the Treaty of Kremmen. Margrave Albrecht III of Brandenburg granted the region to his son-in-law Lord Heinrich II of Mecklenburg. After the death of his daughter Beatrix, his successor Margrave Waldemar tried in vain to regain the country and in 1317 he had to cede the area again to Heinrich II as a Brandenburgian fiefdom. By the first partition of Mecklenburg the country became a part of Mecklenburg-Stargard until 1471, by the second partition in 1621 of Mecklenburg-Güstrow and by the third partition in 1701 of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, together with the western exclave of Ratzeburg, 200 kilometres away from the main part.
The coat of arms was a modified version of arms of the Free State of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (1918 - 1933), its Latin cross was however replaced by a Maltese cross. The dexter half is a representation of the embattled tower of Stargard Castle, built in the 13th century and is representing the Lordship of Stargard. The bull' head is taken from the arms of Mecklenburg. The crown was omitted since 1918 in the Free State, after the monarchy had been abolished. The Latin cross (until 1933) was probably representing the Principality of Ratzeburg. It was replaced by a Maltese cross in 1996, representing the commanderies of the Order of St. John in Mirow and Nemerow. The main tinctures are those of Mecklenburg

Meaning:
The bull' head displays the arms of the Lords of Werle, former rulers from 1227 until 1317. The osprey is representing two important nature sanctuaries. The open gate is symbolising the landscape with more than 150 lakes bigger than an hectare each. The embattlements are representing the four cities Waren, Malchow, Penzlin and Röbel. The background tinctures are those of Mecklenburg.
