Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 26, 1939.

The lion in the arms is the lion of the counts, later dukes of Berg, who owned the area. The horn symbolises the fact that the town grew around a major post station of the Thurn und Taxis postal service in the last century. The station was situated on a major crossroads Köln-Düsseldorf and Solingen-Hitdorf.
