Lübbecke County Coat of Arms (1935 - 1968)

Shield Argent, issuant from base an enhanced triplemount Gules charged with a bar wavy Argent.
Meaning:
The arms are canting, mount and creek, represented by the bar wavy are alluding to the old Saxon settlement Hlid beki, the origin of Lübbecke city. The name means "location near a creek beneath a hillslope". The existence of the current name is proven since the 15th century. The colours red and white are those of the Counts of Ravensberg and of the Bishops of Minden as well. Both ruled parts of the current county in the early Middle Ages. The meaning of the arms was considered to be inapprehensible by the local authorities and furthermore the pattern was considered as "not suitable for seals" and was abolished.

The old arms were approved on 9 March 1935 by Prussian Minister of State. The new arms were approved in 1968 Minister of Interior of Nordrhein-Westfalen. Falko Schmidt reported that Clemens Stadler claimed that the old arms were not used since 1958 and thus no flag. This was however not mentioned by the county administration.
