Rovray (since 1 January 2005)

The communes of Rovray and Arrissoules merged on 01.01.2005. The new coat of arms has retained symbols from the former entities adding an arch to symbolise the motorway tunnel built not long time before on the former commune of Arrissoules that gave its name to the tunnel. The French blazoning reads as follows: "D'azur semé de glands d'argent, au tunnel maçonné de même, ouvert d'azur à quatre pals d'or, au tilleul arraché au naturel brochant sur le palé, le tout surmonté d'un cerf élancé d'or"

A tricky canting flag! The probable link is to be found with the acorns.  French toponyms like Rouvray or Grosrouvre originate from "rouvre" (popular Latin "roborem") designating a species of oak (chêne rouvre - Quercus petrae).
