Armoiries de Philippeville

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on March 13, 1822 and again on August 28, 1979.

The arms were probably granted in 1554 wen the city was founded by Emperor Charles V. He named the new city after his son, the later King Philip II of Spain. The arms thus show four crowned letters P and the cross of Burgundy, as an indication to the history of the dynasty.
