Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on May 11, 1939 and again on March 15, 1976.

The eagle is taken from the arms of the Knights of Anröchte, a branch of the Counts of Arnsberg (who also used an eagle), who lived in the town in the 13th-15th century. The base shows the local green-blue dolomite mountain, which is quarried and exported.
