Civic heraldry of Luxembourg
The arms were granted on November 29, 1982.
The lower part of the arms (point) show the arms of Sterpenich, in Belgian Luxembourg. The Lords of Kahler, one of the vilalges in the municipality, originated from Sterpenich.
The castles and the bars are derived from the arms of the Sergeant Mershalls of Luxembourg, who owned the villages of Garnich, Dahlem and Hivange. The original arms are the arms of Luxembourg with the two castles placed on both sides of the lion. The lion is removed in the arm sof Garnich.
The point represents also the local Reiberg, a characteristic mountain in the municipality.
Literature : Loutsch, J-C. et al.; Armorial communal du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, Fisch, Luxembourg, 1989, 331 p.
