Grabow Coat of Arms

[Grabow coat of arms] image located by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 26 July 2009

Shield Azure, a waning crescent Or accompanied at sinister by three 6-point stars of the same in triangle. The shield is crested by a mural crown Gules with three visible towers and port Or.
Meaning:
Grabow had been mentioned as a city first in 1275. A dade, already issued in 1252 by the Counts of Dannenberg as vassals of the Margraves of Brandenburg, which pretended the grant of city rights, later turned out to be a forgery. A city seal with prints since 1371 displayed St. George, the local patron saint, recognisable by his shield charged with a cross (fitchy), standing on a lying crowned male. This type prevailed until the 16th century. It was replaced by another seal displaying a big star over a crescent recumbent. Since 1858 the city used the current pattern, the so called lunar arms, but with a different shield. It was based on a city seal from 1667. These arms were replaced between 1940 and 1946 by another coat of arms, displaying St. George in clad armour with the dragon and a golden swastika on his lance pennant. In 1946 the mayor of the city applied for new arms, again displaying on blue a silver crescent with stars of the same with an additional mural crown, then having a silver gate. That type of mural crown is a typical element of Russian city heraldry. Thus it had been refused by the Mecklenburg Main Archive, but the Soviet Military Government had already given an approval and thus the pattern was confirmed by the authorities of Mecklenburg on 18 July 1946. In 1991 the tinctures of crescent and stars were changed to golden.

Karstädt Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a bull passant Or, in chief a waning crescent Or.
Meaning:
The bull is symbolising agriculture as main business line. The crescent is taken from the city arms of Grabow, as the predecessors of Karstädt historically belonged to that city, before they were united as an independent municipality in 1952.

Shield Or, two scythe blades Azure in saltire, in chief a fly Gules winged Or.
