Civic heraldry of Luxembourg
The arms were granted on March 2, 1982.
The arms are a combination of the arms of the Lords of Pittange (cross) and the Wiltheim family (sticks). Waldbredimus was a joined possession of 4 abbeys in the Middle Ages; St. Maximin de Treves, Marienthal, Munster and Bonnevoie. The local government was carried out by the Lords of Pittange. In the 16th century the Wiltheim family acquired the area from the abbeys and made it a separate Lordship.
In the arms the lily cross is taken from the arms of the Wiltheim family and the four points also represent the four abbeys.
