Wappen von Neunkirchen (Saar)

Official blazon

  • (de) In Schwarz eine eintürmige silberne Kirche in Vorderansicht mit hohem kreuzbestecktem Helm, offenem spitzbogigen Portal und drei offenen spitzbogigen Fenstern, begleitet oben rechts von einem silbernen Schlägel und einem silbernen Hammer in schräger Kreuzung, oben links von einem speichenlosen silbernen Zahnrad.

Origin/meaning

The city developed due to the mining activities. The village became a city in 1922 and in 1935 the first arms were devised. The arms showed a wheel and a wolf's hook, the old village symbol. In 1946 the arms were finally granted and show the local church (canting symbol) and the symbols of mining and industry. The wolf's-hook resembled too much the swastika and was thus removed.
