|Location of the municipality of Belsch in the Ludwigslust-Parchim district|
The Ramm district belongs to Belsch.
Even if the village was founded well before that, the first known documentary mention comes from the year 1363. At this time Heinrich von der Hude sold the place to Duke Albrecht II. In 1756, Belsch passed from knightly possession into state rule. The Thirty Years' War and a wave of plagues in 1638 destroyed the place and wiped out all life. Resettlement after these events was slow.
On July 1, 1950, the previously independent municipality of Ramm was incorporated.
Until 1989 the community was mainly characterized by agriculture.
coat of arms
Blazon : "In silver over a golden shield base that is bent upwards, the growing red gable front of a Lower Saxon farmhouse with black half-timbering and black gable boards with turned away horse heads."
It was designed by the Schwerin heraldist Karl-Heinz Steinbruch . It was approved by the Ministry of the Interior on June 22, 2009 and registered under the number 326 of the coat of arms of the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
|Foundation of the coat of arms: Since the Middle Ages, Belsch and Ramm have been exposed to strong drifting sand drifts in dry storms. The fall of the old village of Ramm has also become part of popular tradition in various legends. In the coat of arms, the threat to the farms from drifting sand drifts is symbolized by means of a curved shield base in front of a partially covered farmhouse.|

The official seal shows the municipal coat of arms with the inscription "GEMEINDE BELSCH • LANDKREIS LUDWIGSLUST-PARCHIM".
