Armoiries de Limoges

Official blazon

De gueules, au chef de Saint Martial de carnation, orné à l’antique d’or, ombré de sable, entre deux lettres gothiques d’or S et M ; au chef d’azur, chargé de trois fleurs de lis d’or.

Origin/meaning

Limoges was evangelized by Saint Martial, who came to the city around 250 with two companions, Alpinianus and Austriclinienus.

The arms thus show the bust of St. Martial as well as his initials S.M. The chief shows the three fleur-de-lys of the Royal French arms, indicating the importance of the city.
