Origin/meaning

The arms were officially adopted on November 25, 1994.

The field with the fleur-de-lys and the crosiers is the arms of the Saint-Calais Abbey, to which the local church belonged. St. Calais is also the patron saint of the village. The small shield shows the arms of the Frémont family, in the 15th century owner of several estates in the municipality (Chesnay and Dianières). The small shield also indicates the agricultural character of the village.
