The arms of the city show a goat's head, which is a canting symbol for the German name of the city, Ziegenhals (Ziege=goat, Hals=neck). The image already appeared on the oldest seal of the city, known from 1404. All later seals show the same image, but the head is sometimes facing left, instead of right as in the above arms. Also the colours of the horns ans the tongue often differed, see images below.
