Shield Argent; an embattled gate Gules masoned Sable with port and windows Argent, a central tower with cone roof, topped by a ball Or, flanked by two embattled towers, topped by two wyverns couchant addorsed Sable, armed Or and tongued Gules.
Meaning:
Wittenburg was ruled by the Counts of Ratzeburg since 1142 and by the Counts of Schwerin since 1201. The latter granted city rights in 1231. The arms are based on a city seal, known from prints since 1298. The gate is symbolising a fortified city, the wyverns are referring to the Counts of Schwerin. The wyverns had been brown until 1997.

The arms were granted on 10 April 1858 by Grand Duke Friedrich Franz II of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and published in the Municipal Roll of Arms Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as no.127. A flag was never approved officially.
