Origin/meaning

The village belonged for a long time to the Counts of Saint-Pol, and since 1774 to the Counts of Horne. Through marriage it became a possession of the Princes of Salm, who owned it only a few years until the French Revolution. The arms show the horns of the Counts of Horne and a chief of vair, taken from the arms of the counts of Saint-Pol.
