Blason de Saint-Symphorien (Lozère)
Official blazon
French D'azur à deux Aquilons d'argent mouvant des angles du chef, leurs souffles prolongés par deux fourreaux d'épée du même passés en sautoir et cantonnés en chef d'une abeille d'or et en flancs de deux fleurs de lis du même; au monts de trois coupeaux posés en fasce d'argent et chargé d'une rose de gueules.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially adopted on November 23, 2011.

The colours are those of the abbey of La Chaise-Dieu on which Saint-Symphorien depended, the azure also referring to the Ance river.

The Aquilons evoke Bel-Air ('good air'), the bee the martyrdom of Saint Synphorien. The Aquilons blow in two bouffadous in order to recall the legend of Bouffarel, the place where a shepherd would have discovered that this magic instrument used by the witches made it possible to rekindle the fire.

I have no information on the fleur-de-lys and the rose. Literature: Image from http://www.armorialdefrance.fr
