Langenfeld Coat of Arms Photo: The village of Langenfeld remained Catholic throughout the Reformation despite an attempt to introduce the Lutheran religion. The coat of arms for Langenfeld is based on a judicial seal of the village from the year 1775 found in the archives of Koblenz. The judicial seal depicts on its seal background a crest with the sovereign cross of Trier, showing the half figure of the church patron St Quirinus. The red beam cross on the silver shield represents the Princes of Trier. The church patron, St Quirinus is represented by nine silver globes in two perpendicular rows, since St Quirinus, as city patron of Neuss and often as the Roman Tribune, was depicted with a shield showing nine globes, as the city coat-of-arms of Neuss.
