Gleina Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, issuant from base Vert, charged with four roses Argent seeded Vert in orle, a linden tree Vert, flanked by two triplets of billets Gules, each ordered 1:2.
Meaning:
The colours green and white are those of the local sports club. The roses are taken from the family arms of the Knights of Gleina. The linden already appeared on local seals for centuries as a symbol of the local court, held beneath the tree. The billets are alluding to the depletion of loam and the production of bricks.

Meaning:

Laucha Coat of Arms

Shield Or, a warrior in clad armour with coat Sable, holding a pennant Azure fixed on a pole Sable in his right hand, and leaning on a shield by his left hand, shield Azure, charged with a lion rampant double queued Or.
Meaning:
The warrior most probably is either the Bohemian King Wenzel IV the Idle (1363-1419) from the Luxemburg kin or Duke Friedrich the Belligerent, Margrave of Mei?en (1370 - 1428). The former was also German King of the Holy Roman Empire from 1376 until his degradation in 1400. He granted city rights to Laucha in 1392. These rights were improved by the latter in 1409. The current arms display a shield with the Bohemian double queued lion but not in the tinctures of the Bohemeian arms. Otto Hupp (1925) displayed the warrior without helmet, a different pennant (parted of red and yellow) and the arms of the Margraviate of Mei?en on the shield. A local stamp from 1892 displays the warrior crowned, but it is unrecognisable whether it is a royal crown or just an elector's coronet. The city's website displays the arms with a mural crown Argent with three visible towers and a gate Or. This mural crown however is not mentioned in the local Hauptsatzung.

Nebra Coat of Arms

A saint in armour Or, riding a horse salient Argent brisled Or and killing a dragon Vert in base by his lance Or.
Meaning:
The saint is St. George, the local patron saint. The pattern already appeared on local seals from the 16th century and has remained basically the same since then, only having changed in details.
