The Coat of Arms
Let us evoke the families Gonthier of Soulas and of Beaufort, the tragedy of 1944 and the revival that arose from this tragedy, know that:
Equally divided vertically: one side is of azure with three pieces of silver, set in the border; with a cut shield of green and sand, in heart stitching on the whole.
Motto: 1960 – Pressinhacum - Vicus – 1998
The sand (black) of the shield in the middle evokes mourning that becomes less with time and succeeding generations, but its memory remains, marked in these weapons. The green grows from day to day, after having taken birth in the darkest days of the history of Pressignac.
1960: The year the town was created.
Pressinhacum-Vicum: The Latin names of the two parishes.
1998: The year these coats of arms were created.
