LAC DE LA HAUTE-SÛRE
Additions : 1978 Harlange, Mercher
The arms were granted on June 22, 1988.
The municipality was created in 1978 and both older municipalities did not have their own arms.
The red chief with the golden field is taken from the arms of the Wiltz Estate, to which the area historically belonged. The black bends are taken from the arms of the Prevosts of Bastogne, who also had several possessions in the area. Their arms showed four black bends of gold. The base shows a pike, a symbol for the Haute-Sûre lake, after which the municipality is named.
