Wappen von Bardenberg

Official blazon


The lion is taken from the arms of the Counts of Jülich, as until the 18th century the village was part of the Jülich county. The mining-tools symbolise Bardenbergs tradition as a mining-town. The trefoils symbolise agriculture. The harp is derived from the name (Barde means singer) although the original name has other origins.
