Meaning: city website and Stefan Schwoon's database
Prenzlau today is the seat of Uckermark County, the largest county in Germany. A settlement of the Dukes of Pomerania existed since 1128, a market and a church since 1188. 1250 the Margraves of Brandenburg acquired the market town. In 1287 city walls were established, and since then the settlement probably had been a city. 1685 Huguenots settled down here. At the end of the 13th century city seals displayed just the eagle of the Margraves of Brandenburg. The helmet is reminding on an episode from 1425. The two mayors of the city surrendered and overhanded the city to the Pomeranians. Next year the margraves regained the city and the mayors had been beheaded. The eagle of Brandenburg since then had a helmet as a mark of abatement. The shape and colour of the helmet changed in the past. The lower half of the shield was added in 1705 by Prussian King Friedrich I, who hunted swans in the region.
