Armoiries de Eschweiler (Luxembourg)

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on April 2, 1982.

The main part of the arms, a red chief on a golden shield, is the arms of the Lordship of Wiltz, to which Eschweiler belonged. The dog is taken from the arms of the Eschweiler family, reported to be vassals of the Lords of Wiltz. The bends in the lower part of the arms are based on the arms of the abbey in Bastogne (Belgium) which had many rights in the area.
