The district is named after the two main rivers running from the south to the north. The Uecker river runs through the towns of Pasewalk, Torgelow and Ueckermünde before entering the Baltic Sea. The Randow is a tributary of the Uecker; it is running through Eggesin and flows into the Uecker just a few kilometres above its mouth.


The district was created on June 12 1994 by merging the previous districts Pasewalk, Ueckermünde and part of the district Strasburg.

Coat of arms

The coat of arms show a griffin to the left and an eagle to the right. The griffin is the symbol of Pommern, while the eagle is the symbol of Brandenburg. Historically the territory of the district was divided between these two states. The tower in the middle represents a large tower in Pasewalk, the capital of the district. The wavy lines in bottom stand both for the two main rivers which gave the district its name, as well as for the Szczecin Bay of the Baltic Sea.
