Azure, a Compass Or.
Željko Heimer, 2 June 2000

The compass here is not associated with the name of Lignières, but to Jean Hory, baron of Lignières in 1625, who received for his personal arms a golden compass, the compass being a symbol of equity. These arms were never held either by Jean Hory, or by his family, but 6 years later, these arms were found engraved and painted on the stairs of the municipality hall.
Pascal Gross, 3 June 2000
