Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on February 26, 1845.

The arms show a Moor's head, derived from the legendary arms of the Testard family. The village was first mentioned in the 9th century as a possession of the Testard family. The family, who named itself after the village, ruled the village until the 14th century. Their arms are not known, however a banner is described for the family, which bore a Moor's head. From this banner the arms were derived.
