Armoiries de Ballens

Official blazon

D'or à la bande de gueles chargée en chef d'une croix tréflée d'argent posée en pal.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially adopted in 1925.

The red bend and the gold field are taken from the arms of the Monod family which possessed the fief of Froideville, hamlet in the commune of Ballens. The cross, also known as aSaint-Maurice cross, refers to the patron of the former chapel of the village, already mentioned in 1139, and which was a subsidiary of the parish church of Mollens.
