Textiles industries (linen and cotton) and mining were the main occupational activities. Neukirchen and Vluyn merged in 1928.

Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The black shield is divided by three golden(=yellow) sinister bendy, wavy lines.
According to source the wavy lines are symbolizing branches of river Rhine, called "vluyn"" in the local language. The colours gold and black have been taken from the arms of the counts of Moers, former rulers of both locations.
