Herzberg Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, a stag passant Gules on top of a triplemount Vert, issuant from base.
Meaning:
The arms are canting, as the first name of the settlement had been Hirschberg (= mountain of the stags).The colours of the flag, white-green-yellow, are not derived from the arms. Possibly white and green are for Saxony to which the city belonged until 1815, and green and yellow for the Fläming region.
