Nordsachsen ("North Saxony") is a district (Kreis) in the Free State of Saxony, Germany.

History[edit]

The district was established by merging the former districts of Delitzsch and Torgau-Oschatz as part of the district reform of August 2008.

On 10 December 2009 the district council adopted the district's new coat of arms.

“Or a lion rampant Sable armed and langued Gules between two pallets wavy Azure.”
