Official blazon

D'or à la croix de gueules cantonnee de seize alérions d'azur, l'écu sommé d'une couronne à cinq fleurons et tenu par deux anges de carnation, aux ailes d'argent, vêtus d'une robe courte et sans manches du même, avec écharpe de gueules portée en sautoir.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on May 9, 1950.

The arms are those of the Montmorency family, who acquired the estate in the middle of the 17th century and owned it until the end of the 18th century. The arms are based on a 18th century seal of N. de Montmorency as marquise of Rèves and baron of Luttetal.
