Former Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a silver(=white) field is a green mountain having three tops superimposed by a silver(=white) shield divided by two blue bars. Above the mountain are three red leaves of a water-lily ordered horizontally.
Meaning:
According to source the mountain is symbolizing the forest Teutoburger Wald, the water-lily leaves are taken from the arms of the counts of Tecklenburg and the shield is symbolizing the died out Lords of Münster, whose residence was located in Vortlage mansion near Lengerich. This coat of arms was approved on 3 April 1939 by Oberpräsident of Prussian province of Westphalia. It was abolished in 1948.

Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a blue field is a golden(=yellow) upright anchor garlanded by two branches of linden tree of the same colour.
Meaning:
According to source the arms are based upon a seal, which had been used in 1727, when Lengerich gained the rights of a city. The anchor is derived from the counts of Tecklenburg, having been also rulers of both counties of Lingen, though Lengerich never belonged to Lingen. The meaning of the branches is not clear. Stadler 1972 claims, the should be stems of water-lilies, the proper ensign of the counts of Tecklenburg. A new interpretation claims that branches of linden trees are a symbol of peace. Talks of negotiators in Münster and Osnabrück before the end of 30-years-war should have taken place in Lengerich. But this interpretation is very doubtful. The branches had been green. It was probably Hupp, who altered the tincture into golden due to heraldic rules.
