    Vogtland County Coat of Arms

    [Vogtland County CoA] image by Jörg Majewski, 10 Feb 2007

    Shield parted per pale; at dexter Sable a lion rampant crowned Or, armed and tongued Gules; at sinister Or an eagle Sable, armed and tongued Gules.
    Meaning:
    The crowned lion was taken from the arms of the Reeves of Plauen and is representing the Vogtland par excellence. It was also used since the 19th century by the county representatives (German: Kreisstände). They used however a lion without crown. In order to distinguish their arms from those of some local cities later a golden crown was added. The sinister half displays the eagle of the Holy Roman Empire and is reminding on the imperial politics of the Staufen kin. Emperor Friedrich I Barbarossa tried in vain to establish a connected territory under direct imperial rule from Egerland and Vogtland to the Pleißenland. This project was especially supported by the reeves. The meaning of the Vogtland is "land of reeves".

    It was a yellow-black horizontal bicolour with a white-green horizontal bicolour with length of edges 25% of the total flag.
    Meaning:
    The colours yellow and black are representing the Vogtland, the colours green and white are representing Saxony.

    Auerbach County Coat of Arms

    Shield parted per pall reversed abased embowed; above right Sable a lion rampant Or; above right Sable a black cock statant Sable on a demi-annulet issuant of the same, flanked by two triplets of firs Sable, in base a fess wavy Argent; beneath abased parted per fess of Argent and Vert.
    Meaning:
    The upper parts can be considered to be big inescutcheons having a white fimbriation. The sinister part displays the former arms of the county. The Argent tincture is realised as light grey in contrast to the fimbriations and the base, both realised as white. The black cock (German: Auerhahn) is erroneously considered as canting. The golden lion is representing the Vogtland, a territory under direct imperial rule. The lion is not particularly rampant, just similar to that kind. It is described by Erwin Günther as "squiggly". The flag colours are those of the Vogtland.

    Plauen County Coat of Arms

    Shield parted per pall reversed abased embowed; above right Sable a lion rampant Or, crowned, armed and tongued Gules; above left Azure an eagle Argent, over all a bendlet Gules; beneath Or parted by a saltire Sable.
    Meaning:
    The lion is representing the Vogtland, especially the reeves (German: Vögte, Plural of Vogt) of Weida, Gera and Plauen. The sinister half is displaying the arms of the Lords of Lobdeburg as reeves of Strasberg. First mentioned in 1194 they resided in Strasberg Castle near Plauen until 1267. The black saltire is referring to the Burgraves of Meißen, who had been reeves of Plauen between 1426 and 1572. The flag colours are those of the Vogtland.
    Source: Erwin Günther: "Wappen, Flaggen und Symbole in Sachsen und seinen Stadt- und Landkreisen", Goslar 2001, p.124
    Klaus-Michael Schneider, 4 Jan 2020

    The arms were approved on 3 July 1991. The flag was introduced later in a new version of the county's Hauptsatzung, where no date is given.
