Origin/meaning

The arms were officially adopted on November 8, 2021.

The first quarter shows the arms of the d'Allamont family, lords of Quincy in the 17th century. The two towers symbolise the two villages in the municipality, each with its own castle. The lion in the fourth quarter is taken from the arms of the 18th century Lords of lLandzécourt.

The wavy bar symbolises the Loison river.

Why the municipality decided on an oval shield is not mentioned in the minutes of the decision.
