Lucka Coat of Arms

Shield Or; standing on a mount issuant Vert a knight in armour Argent (realised as grey), holding a Latin cross Sable by his right hand and a heraldic rose Gules seeded Or, barbed and stemmed Vert by his left hand; at dexter an impending inescutcheon Argent, charged with a heraldic rose Gules seeded Or, barbed Vert.
The oldest city seal from 1431 displayed a knight holding a cross and a flagellum, accompanied by a triangular shield displaying a rose. Later the flagellum was replaced by a rose with stem. Since the 17th century the arms displayed the rose of the Burgraves of Altenburg alone. In 1951 a completely different coat of arms was adopted, displaying on a golden shield a standing worker, dressed blue and holding a silver hammer in fess, in front of two pairs of green firs. The oldest arms were re-established after the end of the GDR.
