Official blazon

  • (fr) D'azur au pal d'argent chargé de trois tours de gueules, ouvertes et maçonnées de sable, accompagné de quatre pattes de lion d'or mouvant des flancs de l'écu, deux à dextre en barre et deux à senestre en bande; au chef de gueules chargé d'un léopard d'or armé et lampassé d'azur.

Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted in 1878.

The arms are those of the Brancas family, Lords of Mont-Canisy in the 18th century, to which Deauville belonged. The chief shows the leopard of Normandy.
