Shield Azure, a castle Argent with two embattled towers and a central tower with cone roof Gules, in port an inescutcheon Azure in bend, charged with the arms of Nassau.
The arms were based on the oldest seals of the city, which date from around 1300. The arms show a fortified city with three churches, and a small shield with the arms of the Counts of Nassau. The city was a longtime possession of the Counts of Nassau. All later seal show a similar composition until the 19th century when the lion of Nassau was removed.
The arms were approved in 1906 and confirmed in 1934.
