Civic heraldry of Luxembourg
The arms were granted on October 10, 1985.
The silver cross in the arms is derived from the arms of the Lords of Septfontaines, who, for a long time were Lords of Rosport, Dickweiler and Girst. The wavy division line symbolises the geographical situation in the municipality, the plains around the Sûre river, and the mountains surrounding it.
The three crosiers symbolise the other three villages in the municipality, Hinkel, Steinheim and Osweiler. Hinkel was a possession of the Bishops of Trier, Steinheim of the Echternach Abbey and Osweiler was owned by a Clarissan convent in Echternach.
Literature : Loutsch, J-C. et al.; Armorial communal du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, Fisch, Luxembourg, 1989, 331 p.
