Coat of arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per pale. The dexter side shows in a green field golden (= yellow) balances superimposed by a sword of the same colour pointing downwards. The sinister side shows in a golden (= yellow) field a red weaver's shuttle superimposed by an open pair of scissors of the same colour.
Sword and balances are symbolizing the lower court, which had been in the former market town since the 13th century. Shuttle and scissors are symbolizing the important guilds of weavers and taylors.
