Coat of arms
Deutsch: der Landeshaupstadt Düsseldorf in Nordrhein-Westfalen
English: the city of Düsseldorf, state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia
Français : de la ville de Düsseldorf, capitale de l'état de Rhénanie-du-Nord-Westphalie
Deutsch: „In Silber (Weiß) ein blau gekrönter, - gezungter und - bewehrter zwiegeschwänzter steigender roter Löwe, einen gesenkten blauen Anker in den Pranken.“ Das Wappen zeigt den bergischen Löwen und als Sinnbild der Lage am Rhein den Anker. Es ist seit dem 18. Jahrhundert in Gebrauch und geht zurück auf ein Siegel des Schöffenkollegs von 1555. Das Wappen wurde durch königliche Kabinettsorder am 22. Dezember 1817 erstmals genehmigt. Otto Hupp hat es 1938 neu gezeichnet.
English: „Argent, an armed, langued and crowned azure, double-tailed lion rampant gules; in his claws a countersunk anchor azure.“

The arms were last granted on July 16, 1934. The town got city rights in 1288 by Count Adolf von Berg. The seal used from that day showed a church, the contraseal showed a double-tailed lion, derived from the arms of Von Berg.

In a 16th century seal the lion is shown for the first time with an anchor. Ever since the seals and arms of the town showed the lion and an anchor. The position of the anchor changed several times through the centuries, as did the colour. The anchor simply refers to the importance of shipping on the Rhine river. The present arms date from 1817. The additions of 1974 did not change the arms.
Français : »En argent (blanc), un bleu couronné, langué, armé et a double-queue hausse lion rouge, une ancre bleue abaissée dans les pattes.«
