Löbichau Coat of Arms

Shield parted per pale; at dexter parted per fess, above Gules a sunflower's blossom Or seeded fretty of Sable and Or, beneath Sable hammer and mallet Argent in saltire; at sinister Or a lion rampant Gules crowned Or and armed Sable.
The sunflower in the arms is symbolising agriculture. Hammer and mallet are symbolising the depletion of Uraniuam in the area between 1975 and 1990. The depletion was operated by SDAG Wismut with seat in Aue, but in fact by the Soviet Union. The depletion was stopped after German re-unificication in 1990. The lion is taken from the family arms of the Dukes of Kurland (now Estonia). The Duchess of Kurland owned a castle in the 19th century in the municipality.
