Nordvorpommern ("North Western Pomerania") was a Kreis (district) in the northern part of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. The district was created in 1994 by merging the three previous districts Grimmen, Ribnitz-Damgarten and Stralsund. On 4 September 2011, it was merged to Vorpommern-Rügen.
The coat of arms shows two griffins. The golden griffin to the left is the symbol of Princes of Rostock. The black griffin to the right derives from the coat of arms of Pomerania, which however used a red griffin as their symbol. The territory of the district was ruled by a branch of the Dukes of Pomerania which used a black griffin.
