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.
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.

The coat of arms was approved by Oberpräsident of Prussian Rhineprovince(?) on 6 August 1935.
