Origin/meaning

The arms were first used in 1890 and officially granted in 1925.

The arms are the arms of the last Counts of Daun-Falkenstein, who, as vassals of the counts of Berg, ruled Mülheim until 1659. The quarters are Daun, Falkenstein, Limburg, Oberstein, Broich and Reipoltzkirchen.

Whether the city actually used arms before 1890/1925 is not known. The arms of the city have been used widely since the early 20th century, but not always correctly. Sometimes the colours are used wrongly, but especially the number of black bars for the Oberstein quarter varied between three and four.
