The district of Rummelsburg i. Pom. was a Prussian district in Pomerania , which existed between 1724 and 1945. The district of Rummelsburg i. Pom. included on January 1, 1945 the city of Rummelsburg i. Pom. and 73 other parishes.

Administrative history

The area of ​​the later district of Rummelsburg belonged to the Landvogtei Stolp-Schlawe until 1724 . But already during the Thirty Years' War , still in the Duchy of Pomerania, this bailiff was divided into three districts for tax collection, so-called quarters . These quarters were headed by district administrators. In the south of the Landvogtei, the Rummelsburgsche Quartier was formed, from which the Rummelsburg district later developed. After the Thirty Years War, Western Pomerania came to Prussia ; the internal administrative division was initially unaffected.

In 1724, King Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia made a new division of the district for Western Pomerania . 12 districts were formed under 13 district administrators. The Schlawe-Rummelsburg district , which received two district administrators , was a special case . This circle was later split up; this created the Rummelsburg circle .

The attempt to reorganize the district structure in the administrative district of Köslin , begun in 1815, failed due to resistance from the residents. The royal order of January 25, 1817 therefore determined that the district division should remain unchanged.

The district office , i.e. the district office, was only located in the district town of Rummelsburg from 1843. Previously it was at the residence of the respective district administrator, most recently under district administrator Hans von Puttkamer from 1824 to 1842 on his Bartin estate in the north of the district.

As part of Prussia, the Rummelsburg district belonged to the North German Confederation from July 1, 1867, and to the German Empire from January 1, 1871 .

On August 10, 1876, the following changes took place in the district area:

On March 28, 1878 the rural communities Beßwitz , Varzin , Wendisch Puddiger and Wussow and the manor districts Beßwitz , Misdow B., Techlipp , Varzin , Wendisch Puddiger (partially) from the district of Schlawe i. Pom. in the district of Rummelsburg i. Pom. incorporated.

On October 1, 1932, rural communities Groß Karzenburg, Hölkewiese and Klein Karzenburg were merged from the dissolved Bublitz district into the Rummelsburg i. Pom. incorporated.

In the spring of 1945 the Red Army occupied the area of ​​the Rummelsburg district and placed it under the administration of the People's Republic of Poland . This drove the population out of the district and settled it with Poles .

coat of arms

Coat of arms of the Rummelsburg district from 1932 to 1945

The coat of arms of the Rummelsburg district was designed by the Munich heraldist Otto Hupp and approved in 1932 by decree of the Prussian State Ministry . On a silver background it shows a red griffin above it, reinforced with gold , in the claws a blue scythe with gold handles, underneath a red wavy bar .

The red wavy bar is from the coat of arms of the city of Rummelsburg i. Pom. taken, the city coat of arms having two corrugated beams. The city coat of arms, in turn, can be traced back to the coat of arms of the noble family Massow , which shows two red crossbars in the silver shield. The griffin represents the Pomeranian griffin . The scythe is supposed to represent the agricultural character of the district.
