Origin/meaning

The bishop used his personal arms (from the Von Virneburg family, originating in the Eifel region in Germany) on his seals together with the arms of the diocese. He did not quarter his arms or place his arms on the diocesan arms (at least not known from his seals).

The arms in the Kattendijkekroniek manuscript in the Dutch National Library (ca. 1491):
