Coat of Arms

[Nordhorn city coat of arms] image by Jörg Majewski, 26 Nov 2007

Shield Gules, a hunting horn Or surrounded by 13 balls Or.
Meaning:
Nordhorn had been a market town for for a long time and gained city rights in 1379 by Count Bernd of Bentheim. Already the first city seal from the 15th century displayed the current pattern with 17 complete and two half balls, as so called "Bentheim Pennies" often considered to be bezants. The balls are taken from the arms of the Bentheim kin. The horn is a canting element. In the 17th century a new seal displayed the shield topped by a coronet and with two additional lions as supporters. Otto Hupp designed the current pattern, reduced however the number of balls to 13, in order to distinguish the arms from those of the counts.
The arms were officially confirmed in 1940.
