Description of banner:
It is a 7-stripes banner with alternating vertical black and white stripes starting with a black one. In a white square bannerhead is the coat of arms of the city.
Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per pale. The dexter side shows a silver (=white) annulet in a black field. The sinister side shows a black cross in a silver (=white) field.
The cross is taken from the coat of arms of the electorate of Köln for being rulers of Vest Recklinghausen. The annulet is taken from the coat of arms of the local kin of Vrydach. The Vrydachs had three annulets in their coat of arms.
