The district was created in 1994 by joining the former districts of Bautzen and Bischofswerda. The independent city of Hoyerswerda and the former district Kamenz became part of the district in 2008

Coat of armsEdit

  The district's arms are the same as the coat of arms of the margravate of Upper Lusatia. The coat of arms was granted about 1350, when six towns of Upper Lusatia founded a confederacy. This loose alliance was made a margravate by the kings of Bohemia in 1378.
