Colours from the arms. From Ralf Hartemink's International
Civic Arms website: The town got city rights in 1288 by Count Adolf
von Berg. The seal used from that day showed a church, the ante-seal showed
a double-tailed lion, derived from the arms of Von Berg. In a 16th century
seal the lion is shown with an anchor. Ever since the seals and arms of
the town showed a lion and an anchor. The position of the anchor changed
several times through the centuries, as did the colour. The present arms
date from about 1868. The additions of 1974 did not change the arms.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1971 and Nagel 1986.
