German Civic Heraldry - Deutsche Wappenrolle


State : Nordrhein-Westfalen
District (Kreis) : Ennepe-Ruhr-Kreis
Additions : 1926 Durchholz, Ostherbede, Vormholz, Westherbede; 1970 Buchholz
Incorporated into : 1975 Witten

The arms were granted on September 21, 1936.
The city of Herbede was formed in 1926 from the four municipalities of the Amt Herbede. Nor the Amt or the municipalities used arms, and no historical seals were known. Therefore the arms were newly designed and based on the arms of the (extinct) Von Elverfeldt family. This family lived for many centuries in the local castle.
