[Dormagen-Zons CoA] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 2 Aug 2011

Description of coat of arms:
In a red French shield is St. Martin on a horse sharing his coat with a beggar (all in silver (= white)). In the canton of the shield is a silver (=white) square divided by a black centred cross. The shield is topped by a golden (= yellow) mural crown.
Meaning:
According to source the image is known from seals of the village since 1373, sealed papers existed already from 1347, both long before Zons gained city rights. The cross was above the image of St.Martin, who is the local patron saint. The cross is symbolizing the archbishopric and electorate of Köln.
