History of the districts

Greese is of Abodritic origin and was protected all around by water, swamp and a wall. In 1306, a Preen is named as the owner of Greese, who lived in a wooden tower block, whose prominent location can still be found today in the former estate park. The Preens served as knights at Mecklenburg Castle . From the 17th century the von Behr family sat on Greese , who died out in this branch at the beginning of the 20th century. The approximately 300 hectare manor Greese was then acquired in 1913 by Konrad von Randow , who managed it until the land reform . This was followed by expropriation without compensation and settlement of the property to small settlers, socialist collectivization and finally transfer to the agricultural production cooperative Dorf Mecklenburg .

coat of arms

Coat of arms of Lübow
Blazon : “Divided; above in silver two intersecting red round arches; below in red a straight silver linden branch with a falling leaf. "

The coat of arms was designed by Rolf Möller from Wodorfer . It was approved on July 10, 1992 by the Ministry of the Interior and registered under the number 62 of the coat of arms of the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Reasons for the coat of arms: The round arches in the coat of arms refer to the late Romanesque design elements on the frieze bands of the village church built in the first quarter of the 13th century. The linden leaf stands for the large population of linden trees in the community. The leaf on the branch is also intended to symbolize the blossoming of the community.
