Armoiries de Ghoy

Official blazon

Gironné d'argent et de sable de dix pièces, chaque giron de sable chargé de trois croix recroisetées au pied fiché d'or; les pieds dirigés vers le coeur de l'écu. Tenant: un évêque de carnation vétu d'argent.

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on February 25, 1924.

The arms are derived from the arms of the Lords d'Enghien (Edingen), who acquired the estate in the 15th century. The supporter is St. Medardus, the local patron saint. See also Enghien.
