Weißkeißel Coat of Arms

Shield Vert a grain sheaf Or, flanches Argent, the dexter one charged with an attire Sable in pale, the sinister one with four linden leaves Vert stemmed Sable in pale.
The village was first mentioned on 21 September 1452 in a charter, in which Count Wenzel of Bieberstein granted city rights to Muskau. The sheaf is symbolising the rural character. The attire is a differentiation of the arms of the counts. The leaves are representing the settlement cores of Weißkeißel proper, Haide, Kaupen and Bresina.
