Meaning:
Calau was first mentioned as a city in 1279 and had been the seat of an archdeaconate of the Bishopric of Meißen. Calau belonged to the Margraviate of Lower Lusatia (Niederlausitz) and became part of the Electorate of Saxony in 1635 and of Prussia in 1815. The castle is alluding to the rank of a city. The inescutcheon displays the family arms of the Counts of Eilenburg, a branch of the Wettin kin.
