Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Above in a silver (= white) field is a red demi-lion issuant, armed and tongued blue. Below in a black field are golden (=yellow) scales. It is mentioned expressis verbis, that the shield should be of baroque style.
Meaning:
The arms show in the upper part the lion of the counts of Berg and in the lower the scales as a symbol of justice. Lindlar had its own court in the county of Berg. The arms are based on the old seal of the court and village of Lindlar.
