Bad Lausick Coat of Arms

Shield Azure a church Or with two towers shaped different.
At the beginning of the 12th century the area was ruled by Count Wiprecht of Groitzsch, who populated region by Franconian farmers in 1105. At the same time a priory of the Benedictine Pegau Monastery was founded. Its church still is the local parish church, dedicated to St. Kilian. In 1158 Lausick had been a fortified market town and was given under direct rule of the Holy Roman Empire. Meanwhile being a city Lausick became a part of the Lordship of Colditz in the 14th century. In 1819 a mineral spring was discovered. Having been de facto a spa for nearly 100 years the prefix "Bad" was added in 1913 together with the official status of a spa. The church on the arms is a representation of the local parish church.
