Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a blue field is a silver (= white) castle masoned black with three embattled towers. Port and windows are blue. The central tower is bigger and topped by a white gonfanon showing a red griffin. The flagpole is golden (=yellow) with a cross at the top. The port of the castle is open and has a golden ( = yellow) door and a portcullis of the same colour.
The castle might symbolize the city rights. The image on the gonfanon is the griffin of Pomerania.
