Nidda became a city in 1234 and the oldest seal probably dates from the same time. The seal shows a city wall with towers and a gate. From the 14th century onwards, the gate is replaced by the moon and crescent. The colours are known since 1718. The city walls represent the fact that Nidda was a city, the star is taken from the arms of the Lords of Ziegenhain, who owned the city, whereas the crescent may be a typical city or religious symbol.
