Deutsch: „In geteiltem Schild oben in schwarzem Feld ein halbes goldenes (gelbes) Rad auf der Teilungslinie, unten in rotem Feld über einem silbernen (weißen) Herzschildchen eine halbe goldene (gelbe) Lilienhaspel.“ Der Stadt ist mit Urkunde des Innenministers vom 18.10.1951 das Recht zur Führung eines Wappens verliehen worden. Das Voerder Wappen verbindet die Wappen der ortsansässigen Herren von Syberg (Rad) und des Hezogtums Kleve (Lilienhaspel), welche im Gerichtssiegel von Götterswickerhamm-Spellen geführt wurde.
English: „Party sable per fess gules, a demi wheel Or and below a demi escarbuncle Or upon a little escutcheon Argent.“ The arms were granted on October 18, 1951. The former estate of Voerde, which developed during the last centuries into a proper city, was made up of two areas. The old village of Voerde was a possession of the Lords of Syberg in the 17th century. The upper part of the arms shows the wheel of the arms of the Lords of Syberg. The lower part shows the arms of the counts of Kleve, who owned Götterswickerhamm-Spellen, the other part of the estate of Voerde, which were combined in the 17th century.
