The coat of arms was granted on 6 June 1930 by Prussian ministry of state. According to 2(2) of Hauptsatzung of the city of Bocholt, version 20 December 1999, updated 11 February 2000, the banner is used with and without coat of arms. The old banner probably was approved together with the coat of arms on 6 June 1930.
