|D'azur à trois fleurs de lis d'or; au chef d'argent chargé d'un coq bicéphale issant au naturel.
|Per fesse argent and azure, in chief a demi-cock with two heads displayed proper issuing from the fesse line combed and wattled gules, in base three fleurs-de-lis or.
The current arms have officially been adopted in 1944, but have been used since 1789.
The three fleur-de-lys are the French Royal arms and clearly indicate the Royal connections and the Royal palace. The meaning of the double-roosters in the chief is not very clear. The most likely hypothesis seems to be the symbol of vigilance represented by the two roosters, vigilance with which the municipality and the civic guard had to fulfill their double duty towards the King and the City.
