Manhole cover in Leipzig, Germany

The manhole covers in Leipzig display the local city arms. The lion represents the Margraviate of Meissen (Markgrafschaft Meissen). The Landsberg Pales (Landsberger Pfähle) represent the Margraviate of Landsberg (Markgrafschaft Landsberg). [German]

The coat of arms of Dresden is similar, but whereas the Leipzig city arms consist of blue pales, the Dresden ones have black pales.
