Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
In a green shield is a round silver (=white) shield superimposed by a black escarbuncle having eight beams. On the edge of the shield are seven circumferential smaller round shields, countercharged in colour. Upon the base is a silver (=white) fess wavy.
Meaning:
The reel fleury is the modern version of that one in the centre of the former coat of arms. There it was a golden (=yellow) escarbuncle upon a red inescutcheon. The smaller shields are symbolizing the seven former municipalities, which formed the city of Hamminkeln. The fess wavy is symbolizing Issel branch of river Rhine.
