Blazon
Deutsch: „In Rot ein silbern (weiß) gekleideter Hirte mit goldenem (gelbem) Haar, goldenen (gelben) Schuhen, goldener (gelber). Umhängetasche und einem Messer in schwarzer Scheide mit goldenem (gelbem) Griff im Gürtel , der einem vor ihm sitzenden silbernen (weißen) Wolf einen goldenen (gelben) Stock in den Rachen stößt.“ Der Oberpräsident Koblenz verlieh der Stadt Wülfrath das Wappen am 18.08.1938. Das Wappen ist eine im Laufe des 19. Jahrhunderts entstandene Abwandlung eines Kirchensiegels aus dem Jahre 1662, das die vom Teufel bedrängte, aber siegreiche Ecclesia darstellte. Es soll den Sieg des Guten über das Böse versinnbildlichen. Zugleich weist der Wolf auf den Ortsnamen Wülfrath hin, der "Rodung des Wolfs" bedeutet; es handelt sich somit um ein "redendes Wappen".
English: „Gules, a shepherd Argent, with hair Or, shoes Or, shoulder bag Or and a knife in a sheat sable with handle Or, who stabs a sitting wolf Argent a stick into its muzzle.“ The arms were granted on August 18, 1938. Wülfrath used in the 19th century, after the town received city rights in 1827 arms that showed a shepherd with a wolf, surrounded by a flock of sheep and lightened by a sun. These arms were based on a seal from 1620 from the local parish. It showed the local church and a shepherd fighting a wolf with a stick. It is probably symbolising the battle between good and evil. The wolf is chosen as a canting symbol. As the old arms were really non-heraldic, the present arms were devised, in which church or sheep were omitted.
