Colours from the field of the arms (red) and its main charge (a white plough). From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
(...) The plough most likely is the old village symbol. The plough was used as the single symbol on the arms and coins of the city until the 18th century.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1971.
