STEINSEL

Armoiries de Steinsel (Luxembourg)

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on July 15, 1983.

Before the Napoleonic time, Steinsel and Mullendorf formed a community, owned by the Grand-Dukes of Luxembourg and ruled by a cartaker appointed by the Dukes. The arms of such servants (prévost) were the lion of Luxembourg, with two castles, on either side of the lion one. The upper part of the arms show such a castle. In the gate of the castl ethere is a water-mill wheel, which is a canting symbol for Mullendorf (from Mühlendorf, or mill-village).

The village Heinsdorf was first mentioned as a separate entity in 1314, with Henri de Stein mentioned as first Lord of Heisdorf. His arms are shown in the lower part of the arms.
