ENKHUIZEN – Coat of Arms

The coat of arms of Enkhuizen has been the coat of arms ever since Enkhuizen received borough rights in 1355. The coat of arms was acknowledged in 1816 by the High Council of Nobility, the coat of arms has not been changed ever since.
The oldest known seal dates from 1361. The herrings stand upright. They probably symbolise the importance of fishery. Besides the herrings the seal also shows two six pointed stars. The seal was used until 1478. A new seal was created in 1538. This seal shows the herrings placed horizontally on a shield. This shield – or escutcheon – is held by a woman standing on the side. In 1816 Enkhuizen received a new coat of arms, acknowledged by the High Council of Nobility
