coat of arms

Due to the seal order of the GDR of May 28, 1953, all regional coats of arms lost their meaning as brands or seals. However, the coats of arms of the cities and districts were still used on buildings or in publications without fulfilling an official function. The coat of arms of the Frankfurt district used in some books actually shows the coat of arms of the city of Frankfurt (Oder) . The seal coat of arms of the GDR was official . It was not until the municipal constitution of the GDR on May 17, 1990 that municipalities and districts were able to expressly use coats of arms again and use them as seals.
