CUVRY

Département : Moselle

Blason de Cuvry

Official blazon

D’or à la tour de sable, ouverte et ajourée du champ, chapé d’azur chargé des lettres onciales S et N du champ.

Origin/meaning

The arms show a tower, taken from the Land of Metz region, to which the village historically belonged. The point is the symbol of the local patron saint, St. Martin of Tours, who cut his cloak for a beggar. The letters S and N refer to the St. Nicholas Hospital in Metz, to which the village belonged for a long time.
