en: The coat of arms of Waldbröl

The town coat of arms which is entitled to lead Waldbröl since 1952 is described in §2 Paragraph 2 of the main statute of the city: The coat of arms points in golden field on green ground by which a silver brook flows, a black oak tree with green page turning and fruit. On the right beside the tree a silver scutellum with a brought down blue plowshare, on the left a silver scutellum with a red twice skipped is blue reinforced and crowned lion. The plowshare symbolizes the historical meaning of the agriculture in this only late industrialized region. The lion was the heraldic animal of the Grafen zu Berg and is widespread as such still today in whole complete Bergischen country. The brook symbolizes the brook Waldbröl arising with Escherhof which changes its name to Brölbach in the other course and when such flows into the Sieg. One supposes that Bröl signifies so much like "marsh" and could call "Waldbröl, hence, " marsh in the wood ".

de: Wappen der Stadt Waldbröl

Das Stadtwappen, das Waldbröl seit 1952 zu führen berechtigt ist, ist in §2 Abs. 2 der Hauptsatzung der Stadt beschrieben:

Das Wappen zeigt in goldenem Feld auf grünem Boden, durch den ein silberner Bach fließt, einen schwarzen Eichbaum mit grünen Blättern und Früchten. Rechts neben dem Baum ist ein silbernes Schildchen mit einer gestürzten blauen Pflugschar, links ein silbernes Schildchen mit einem roten doppelt geschwänzten blau bewehrten und gekrönten Löwen. Die Pflugschar symbolisiert die historische Bedeutung der Landwirtschaft in dieser erst spät industrialisierten Region.

Der Löwe war das Wappentier der Grafen zu Berg und ist als solches noch heute in gesamten Bergischen Land weit verbreitet.

Der Bach symbolisiert den bei Escherhof entspringenden Waldbrölbach, der im weiteren Verlauf seinen Namen zu "Brölbach" ändert und als solcher in der Sieg mündet. Es wird vermutet, daß "Bröl" soviel wie "Sumpf" bedeutet und "Waldbröl" daher "Sumpf im Wald" heißen könnte.
