From Ralf Hartemink's International
Civic Arms website: Oberhausen grew from a unimportant village to a
large industrial town in the last century and became a city in 1874. The
arms show the symbols for mining (hammer), trade (stick of Mercure) and
industry (tools and wheel). The arms were granted in 1888 by King
William I of Prussia. The original colours of the first quarter (black
and white, the Prussian colours) were replaced
Literature: Stadler 1964-1971.
