Borken County Coat of Arms

Shield Or a fess Gules charged with three millrinds Argent.
Meaning:
The red fess in the golden field is the coat of arms of the Archbishopric of Münster. The three millrinds are taken from the arms of the Lords of Zuylen (Utrecht, the Netherlands), who ruled the small dominion of Anholt in medieval times. Please note that [Dutch " zuil" = column]. Therefore the millrinds sometimes had been erroneously denoted as columns.
