Wappen von Heusweiler

Official blazon

  • (de)

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on November 6, 1975.

The first quarter shows the arms of the Counts of Nassau-Saarbücken, to which the area belonged for many centuries. The miner's tools symbolise the importance of mining in the area. The third quarter shows the Köllerbach river that runs through the municipality. The wheel symbolises industry, with each of the spokes representing one of the former municipalities.

The previous arms were granted on May 11, 1967.

The old arms are identical to the new arms, except for the six spokes in the wheel instead of the present seven spokes.
