Coat of arms of Weert

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Coat of arms of Weert

Adopted1977

The coat of arms of the municipality and city of Weert in Limburg in the Netherlands was assigned to the municipality on 16 November 1977 by royal decree by the High Council of Nobility. It replaced the first coat of arms from 1918.

History

The heerlijkheid Weert already existed in the eleventh century. From the 11th century until 1530 the heerlijkheid was in the possession of the dukes of Horn. The chevron initially appeared on a counter seal, likely at the end of fourteenth century. From 1736 the chevron appeared in the city seal. The origins remain unknown.

In 1977 a chief was added to the coat of arms and within that chief were the three hornes from the coat of arms of the House of Hornes.

The description of the coat of arms is:

In zilver een keper van lazuur. Het schild gedekt met een gouden kroon van 3 bladeren en 2 parelpunten.[1]

Which translates to:

In silver a chevron of ultramarine. The shield is covered with a golden crown consisting of 3 leaves and 2 pearl points.

  • The heraldic colours in the coat of arms are argent (white), azure (blue) and or (yellow).

Second coat of arms (1977)

The description of the coat of arms is:

In zilver een keper van azuur, een schildhoofd van goud met 3 hoorns van keel, beslagen van zilver. Het schild gedekt met een gouden kroon van 3 bladeren en 2 parels.

Which translates to:

In silver a chevron of ultramarine, a chief of or with 3 hornes of gules, covered in argent. The shield is covered with a golden crown consisting of 3 leaves and 2 pearl points.

  • The use of a chief of or on a shield of argent appears as conflicting with the rules of colour usage in heraldry. The coat of arms is not an "arms a enquerre", because the chief is a brisure and the rules of tincture do not apply to brisures.
