Windmill and Windmill Sail

In heraldry, windmills are a symbol of agriculture and industry, for countryside and sophisticated craftsmanship.

The windmill is famous for being a charge in the coat of arms and seal of New York City. The symbol traces back to the city’s time as a Dutch colony in North America, Nieuw Amsterdam (New Amsterdam). Windmills can be found everywhere in the mother country, the Netherlands.

The windmill and the separated windmill sails can now be used as a symbol in our coats of arms generator.
