Description

Stefan Schwoon, 26 February 2001

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

Solingen became a city in the early 15th century. The city rights were granted by the Dukes of Jülich. The oldest seals show the patron saint, St. Clement, or the lion of Jülich. In the 17th century the present arms appear. The saint is replaced by his symbol, the anchor. The swords symbolise the local iron industry, which already in the 17th century was famous for its swords and knives. The large arms of the city, which are rarely used, if at all, have two wolves as supporters and a mural crown.

Literature: Stadler 1964-1971.
