THISNES(-LES-HANNUT)

Province : Liège
Incorporated into : 1977 Hannut

Armoiries de Thisnes

Official blazon

D'or au lion de sable, couronné du champ.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on May 31, 1930.

The oldest sels of the town can be found on a charter from November 15, 1361. It shows the lion of Namur, as Thisnes was a possession of the Counts of Namur. On later seals (dating from 1403-1477) the bend on the namur arms was removed and only a lion was used. Based on these seals the arms were granted in 1930.
