Please note that in 2(2) of Hauptsatzung of the city of Dinslaken, version 4 July 1995, just a flag is mentioned but no banner. According to Mr. Sinemus, a functionary of the city, there exist however an everyday banner, a plain bicolour, and a banner with coat of arms used only for special occasions exclusively by the city.

The coat of arms was approved by Prussian ministry of state in 1928.
