Wappen von Hemer/Arms (crest) of Hemer


The arms were granted on March 16, 1976.

The arms are identical to the old arms of the Amt Hemer, to which all of the towns and villages belonged until 1975. Hemer grew rapidly in the early 20th century and received city rights in 1936.

The previous arms were granted on January 15, 1935, and show a bordure based on the arms of the Counts of the Mark, who used a chequered bar in a golden shield. The village historically belonged to the County of Mark. The three wolf-hooks are derived from the arms of the Brabeck family (see also Gladbeck), who lived for many centuries in the local castle.
