"Gummersbach" is a city in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, being the district seat of the Oberbergischer Kreis. It is located 50 km east of Cologne. In the past it was nicknamed "the Lime Tree Town", because lime trees lined the main street. Till the 1920s citizen of Gummersbach also used to call their town "small Paris".

History
In 1109 Gummersbach was mentioned in official documents for the very first time. The document in question concerned the lowering of the episcopal Cathedral Tax for the church in Gummersbach by Eb. Friedrich. At that time the name of the town was spelled as "Gummeresbracht". Gummersbach received charter in 1857.
A survey about the most important historical events under:

The coat of arms
The arms were granted on July 27, 1892.

Gummersbach developed rapidly from a small village to a large city during the early 19th century, due to the metal and textile industry. The right part of the arms thus show a spindle as a symbol for the textile industry. The left part shows the arms of the Counts of the Mark, as the area belonged to the Mark since 1287.
