D’azur au dextrochère de carnation mouvant d'une nuée d'argent, tenant une épée du même garnie d'or, accompagné d’une palme et d’un rameau d'olivier au naturel posés en chevron renversé, le tout surmonté d'un soleil d'or ; au chef de gueules chargé de deux râteaux démanchés d'or.

Origin/meaning

The arms were adopted on October 1, 1966.

The arms are those of Charleville, with a chief of the arms of the Rethel County, to which the town historically belonged. These were also part of the old arms of Mézières.
