Wappen von Stadtlohn

Official blazon

(de)

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on August 14, 1909 and are based on the old arms and seals of the city, known since the 14th century.

Stadlohn was part of the State of Münster from 1316-1802 and the bishops of Münster granted the city rights in the 14th century. Before the bishops the town was owned by the Lords of Lohn. The arms are a combination of the arms of the Von Lohn family and the head of St.Paul, patron saint of Münster and Stadlohn. Instead of the three eagles of the arms of Von Lohn, the city used three heads of St. Paul.
