|Heraldry of the World
Civic heraldry of Luxembourg
Incorporated into : 2001 Tandel
The arms were granted on October 16, 1986.
The arms are a combination of the old arms of Vianden (red with a silver escutcheon), Diekirch (tower) and the arms of the family Landscheid (fleur-de-lis). The village belonged to the area of Diekirch, but the oldest Lords of Bastendorf were descendents of the counts of Vianden. The Landscheid family also played an important role in the history of the village.
Literature : Loutsch, J-C. et al.; Armorial communal du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, Fisch, Luxembourg, 1989, 331 p.
