Origin/meaning

The arms were granted October 29, 1982.

The wolf in the right part of the shield is taken from the arms of the Elvange family, who ruled the village in the 14th century. The lon in the left part is taken from the arms of the Lords of Guirsch, who ruled over Levelange and Oberpallen, two villages in the municipality. The two sticks represent the monasteries in Clairefontaine and Marienthal, who had numerous possessions in the area.
