Old Banner

[Borken (Hessen) old banner] 5:2 image by Jörg Majewski, 23 Oct 2006

It is a red-white-red vertical triband with ratio of stripes approx. 1:4:1. The coat of arms is shifted to the top within the central stripe.

Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, a lion rampant Gules, armed Or and charged with a 6-point star Argent upon his breast.
Meaning:
The oldest known seal of the city from the late 14th century with prints since 1429 already displays a lion. In later seals it is obvious that the lion is the lion barry of Hesse. In the late 19th and middle of the 20th century the lion was still shown as the lion of Hesse. The city, on the other hand, used itself often a red lion in a blue field in literature from the 17th and 18th century. (see image of old banner) In 1951 the star was added as symbol of the Counts of Ziegenhain, rulers in the early middle ages. The addition of many municipalities in the 1970s did not change the arms.
The arms were approved in 1951
