Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on December 9, 1975, but have been used as the official arms of the city since 1953.

Nideggen received city rights in 1313 from Count Gerhard I of Jülich. The oldest seal shows the arms of the Counts of Jülich hanging on a hook. The present combination of the lion of Jülich and the arrow dates from the 16th century.
