Civic heraldry of Luxembourg / Héraldique de Luxembourg / Luxemburgische Wappen
Luxembourg heraldry portal
The arms were granted on February 22, 1985.
Wellenstein has always been a possession of the Counts of Luxembourg, and thus the lower part of the arms show the arms of Luxembourg. The bars in the arms are made wavy as a canting symbol (Welle=wave). The upper part shows a grape vine with three leaves. The main source of income in Wellenstein is viticulture, whereas the three leaves represent the three villages in the municipality.
Literature : Loutsch, J-C. et al.; Armorial communal du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, Fisch, Luxembourg, 1989, 331 p.
