During the 9th century, the rulers of Maribor and Ellander engaged in a conflict known as the War of Daggers from which Maribor was the victor and the Mariborian branch of the Dezmod dynasty became royalty.
A hint to Maribor's arms appears in the campaign for Wiedźmin: Gra Wyobraźni RPG system - Jurkast's description mentions about silver and red lilies on black, being his ancestry symbol. Since it is a rather imprecise description, many other combinations apart from the above could be created.
For a different take on the coat of arms, we have the Juraj's concept.
