Civic heraldry of Luxembourg
The arms were granted on October 5, 1988.
The main division of the shield is taken from the arms of the Lords and Estate of Wiltz, gold with a chief of red. Stadtbredimus belonged to Wiltz from the beginning of the 16th century. The red chief also symbolises the Prüm abbey (now in Germany), which also used a red shield with a Paschal Lamb.
The grape vines in the upper part indicate the importance of viticulture in and near the town.<
The locks in the lower part symbolise the locks in the Moselle river near the town.
Literature : Loutsch, J-C. et al.; Armorial communal du Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, Fisch, Luxembourg, 1989, 331 p.
