Origin/meaning

The griffin is taken from the arms of the Chapter of the Canons of the Counts of Lyon, to which the area belonged for a long period of time. The grapes refer to the importance of viticulture and the crescents are taken from the arms of the La Chaise family, later owners of the village.
