Flag and banner are red-white with the arms. Neuenrade was granted arms in 1912, this followed the usual pattern of the red-white chequered fess with a saint (see also Altena, Lüdenscheid, Iserlohn), here Mary with the Child, both crowned golden and nimbed silver. In 1969 and 1974 the city was enlarged and united with several surrounding communes. To reflect this, the arms were changed, and the black/white cross was added in the base, since the newly integrated communes were historically part of the duchy of Westphalia (and hence of the archdiocese of Köln). The new arms were granted in 1979.
