History[edit]

The municipality was formed in 1907, when the Amt Altena was dissolved. The two municipalities Kelleramt and Wiblingwerde were merged into the new municipality Nachrodt-Wiblingwerde, which was no longer member in an Amt anymore.

Coat of arms[edit]

The coat of arms of the municipality shows in the top part the red and silver rose from the church seal of the Kirchspiel Wiblingwerde. In the bottom is a wavy line representing the river Lenne and thus Nachrodt. Both symbols are separated by the red-and-silver chequered bar of the Mark. The coat of arms was designed by Otto Hupp, and was granted on October 17, 1935.
