CHARMOILLE

Département : Doubs

Armoiries de Charmoille (Doubs)

Official blazon

Divisé en chevron de sinople et de sable; au chevron d'argent brochant sur la partition sommé de deux rameux de charme adossés du même et fruités d'or, unis au chevron, accompagné en pointe d'un soleil non figuré de douze rais d'or, son disque bordé en partie par un croissant d'argent tourné en bande.

Origin/meaning

The two hornbeam branches in the chief are canting (charme=hornbeam). The silver and black colours are taken from the arms of the Provenchère and Baumotte families, who both played a major role in the local history.

The chevron symbolises the mountaneous character of the region. The sun and moon refer to the local tradition of watch-making. The twelve rays refer to the twelve hours of daytime.
