Blason de Carcassonne

Official blazon

D'azur semé de fleurs de lis d'or, au portail de ville flanqué de deux tours couvertes d'argent, maçonné, ajouré et ouvert de sable, la porte coulissée d'argent surmontée d'un écusson de gueules à l'agneau pascal d'argent à la tête contournée nimbée d'or, portant un guidon d'argent chargé d'une croisette du champ.

Origin/meaning

The arms combine the elements from the historical arms of the lower and upper city. The lower city used an Agnus Dei and a bordure with fleur-de-lis, the upper city a castle with a small shield with the three fleur-de-lys of France.
