Glaubitz Coat of Arms

Shield Vert a young woman dressed Argent, holding a carp haurient of the same by her dexter hand and a fleur-de-lis Or by her sinister hand.
The carp had been the heraldic animal of the Lords of Glaubitz, who ruled the village between 1275 and 1303, when their castle was acquired by Knight Bernhard of Kamenz. The fleur-de-lis is taken from the family arms of the Lords of Köckritz, who appeared in the village first in 1408. The woman might be a personification of the village.
