VAURÉAL

Département : Val-d'Oise

Armoiries de Vauréal

Official blazon

D'azur au dolmen d'argent; au chef d'azur chargé de trois fleurs de lis d'or.

Origin/meaning

The lower half of the arms shows the prehistoric megalithic structure discovered in 1867 by Count Amédée de Caix de St-Aymour. The structure obviously was the remnant of an important grave, as could be concluded from the many gifts found in the structure. The three fleur-de-lis are the symbol of France and also were used by the Counts de Caix de St-Aymour.
