Armoiries de Manternach

Official blazon

Origin/meaning

The arms were granted on December 19, 1983.

The old village of Manternach was historically owned by two related families, the Lords of Berbourg and the Lellig family. Both used a similar cross, the first one a red cross on a golden field, the latter a silver cross on a blue field. It was thus easy to combine these arms to new arms of the municipality.
