Armoiries de Quaregnon

Official blazon

Deux écus géminés, le premier écartelé 1 et 4 d'or au lion de sable, armé et lampassé de gueules, aux 2 et 3 d'or au lion de gueules, armé et lampassé d'azur, le second, parti au 1 de sinople à la croix d'argent, au 2, d'or à trois chevrons de sable.


The arms were granted on November 26, 1981.

The arms show two shields, each symbolising the history of one of the villages in the municipality. The shield with the four lions represents Quaregnon, which was a possession of the Counts of Hainaut. The arms thus are those of Hainaut.
The other shield represents Wasmuel and shows the arms of the Sainte-Waudru chapter of the benedictan abbey of Saint-Ghislain, to whom the largest part of the village historically belonged.
