Nowina is one of the oldest Polish heraldic marks with claims that it existed prior to 960 CE. However, the earliest known depiction was on a seal of Nacislaw of Dobrosolow of the Nowina clan in 1293 CE. It was first mentioned in a court registry of 1392 and spread across the families of Greater Poland and the lands of Kraków, Lublin, Sandomierz and Sieradz. After the Union of Horodło of 1413 CE several boyar families adopted this coat of arms. The representative of the Nowina clan adopted the nobility of Lithuanian descent was Mikołaj of Sepno, while the newcomers were represented by Mikołaj Bejnar.
