Sonneberg Coat of Arms

Shield Or, a double queued lion rampant Sable, armed and tongued Gules, accompanied in base by two 8-point stars Sable.
Meaning:
Sonneberg Castle had been built by commissionaires of the Dukes of Andechs-Meranien around 1200. After the kin had died out, the little lordship was acquired by the Counts of Henneberg. Beneath the castle developed a village named Röthen. It was called a small city (German: Stäädtlein) in 1317. City rights were granted officially in 1349 by Countess Jutta of Henneberg. In 1353 the city was acquired by the Margraves of Meißen from the Wettin kin together with Coburg. It was acquired by the Ernestine branch in 1418, by Sachsen-Coburg in 1572, by Sachsen-Altenburg in 1640, by Sachsen-Gotha in 1672 and finally by Sachsen-Meiningen in 1699, confirmed in 1918. The amrs are based on a city seal of Sonneberg from the 16th century. The arms are basically those of the Margraves of Meißen. The stars are just distinguishing marks, which had been abolished in the 19th century and restored in 1934.
