Coat of arms
Deutsch: Gemeinde Sonsbeck
English: Municipality of Sonsbeck
Français : Municipalité de Sonsbeck
Deutsch: „Das Wappen zeigt in rot eine neunzehnstrahlige goldene (gelbe) Sonne, über die ganze Schildbreite belegt mit einem erniedrigten blauen Wellenbalken, dieser oben begleitet von einem dreizinnigen roten Mauerstück.“ Der Gemeinde ist mit Urkunde des Regierungspräsidenten in Düsseldorf vom 9. September 1970 das Recht zur Führung eines Wappens verliehen worden. Das Wappen ist abgeleitet vom Amtswappen des ehemaligen Amtes Sonsbeck. Bereits ältere Siegel führten Sonne (Sons-) und Bach (-beck) im Wappen; das Mauerstück erinnert an früheren Stadtrechte (bis 1800).
English: „Gules, a nineteen rays sun Or on the whole shield breadth, charged with an abased fess wavy azure, above accompanied from a threefolded piece of wall gules. The arms were granted on September 9, 1970. Sonsbeck received city rights in 1320 from Count Dietrich of Kleve. All seals of the city showed a canting image, a sun over a wavy bar (Sonne = sun, Beck=Bach=stream). The former city character is shown by the addition of a small wall in the sun. The seals often showed a castle of city wall with a seal with sun and stream in front.“
