D'argent au pont de gueules; chapé d'azur chargé à dextre d'un alérion d'argent et à senestre d'un caillou d'or.

Origin/meaning

The arms show a canting bridge (pont). The blue and silver refer to the local patron saint, St. Martin of Tours, who cut his cloak for a beggar. The alerion and the stone refer to the higher and lower courts to which the village was subjected. The alerion stands for the court of Lorraine, the stone to the court of the Cathedral Chapter of Metz.
