The arms were granted on August 9, 1892.

The arms show in the upper part the lion from the arms of the Counts of Berg, who bought the area in 1260 from the Counts of Hückeswagen. The lower part is a symbol for the textile industry, which has been of importance for the town since the late Middle Ages. The combination of lion and spindle appears first in a seal from 1555.
