Wappen von Niederkassel

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on April 28, 1936 and continued in 1970.

The arms show the (now ruined) castle Lülsdorf, originally a possession of the Counts (later Dukes) of Jülich. The small arms show the arms of the Lords of Lülsdorf, who acted as vassals from 1250-1400. The waves in the base of the shield symbolise the Rhine river.
