Wettin-Löbejün Coat of Arms

Shield quartered; 1st quarter Gules a castle Argent with three embattled towers, the side towers topped by cone roofs, the windows Sable and the port Argent with two open port wings Or; 2nd quarter Argent an anchor Gules; 3rd quarter Argent a plough share Vert; 4th quarter Vert two keys Argent in saltire.
Meaning:
The 1st quarter displays the arms of former Wettin City (details see below), the 4th quarter displays a modification of the arms of former Löbejün City, which displayed the keys , surrounded by four heraldic roses in saltire (white - red - red - white). The crossed keys are an attribute of St. Peter, patron saint of the local parish church. The roses are said to have been a mere decoration. The anchor is symbolising shipping on River Saale and the plough share is symbolising the rural character of the minor entities, incorporated into the new city.

Wettin Coat of Arms

Shield Gules, a castle Argent with three embattled towers, the side towers topped by cone roofs, the windows Sable and the port Argent with two open port wings Or.
Meaning:
The pattern appeared first on a city seal about 1600 with a circumscription "SIGILLUM DER STADT WETTIN" and also on all later seals. The arms basically didn't change but varied in minor details, e.g. the embattled wall is sometimes depicted masoned black. Wettin is the seat of the namesake kin, which became Counts of Landsberg, Margraves of Meißen and later Electors of Saxony. A castle existed since 961, being a subject of interest of the St. Maurice Monastery of Magdeburg. It became the seat of local counts, who renamed themselves as Counts of Wettin in around 1100. 1217 the Counts of Brehna acquired the castle, which was sold to the Archbishops of Magdeburg in 1288. Finally it became a dominion of the Margarves of Brandenburg as successors of the archbishops in 1680. The city flourished, important business lines had been coal mining (since 1691 with own mining authority in 1714), shipping, fishing, brewery and basketry.

The arms are traditional and had never been approved.
