Osnabrück became a city already early in the 13th century. The first seal is mentioned in 1217, but the oldest existing seal dates from 1243. It already shows a wheel with 8 spokes. In another seal in 1274 the wheel has only 6 spokes. The arms thus never changed since. The colour used to be red, but probably already in the 15th century the colour was changed to black.

Seal from around 1900
The arms by Hupp in the Kaffee Hag albums +/- 1925
