The arms were officially adopted on January 13, 2017.

The rook is a kind of canting element, the name comes from Hugny, which supposedly was derived from Hugues which means intelligence.

The two cockades are those of the RAF; they represent the sacrifice of seven British airmen whose Lancaster plane was shot down by the Germans over Ugny on 27/04/1944.

The wolf's head refers to Saint Loup (loup means wolf) the patron saint of the parish.

The zander supporters are the main fish in the Meuse.
