These arms are canting arms, “Loubet” in Occitan language meaning “small wolf” . The bell in the chief reminds the fact that the family of the armiger comes from the high valley of Massat in Couserans, an historical province in Central Pyrénées: the two capitals of Couserans have a bell in their CoA, a gold one for Saint-Girons (the political capital) and an azure one for Saint-Girons (the episcopal city). The armillary sphere is an iconic symbol of the age of the great discoveries and the Renaissance period. It is a metaphor of knowledge, especially geographical and refers to the curiosity and the taste of travel of the armiger.
English: An armillary sphere Or imbricated in a cross of Toulouse Or.
French: Une croix de Toulouse d’or à la sphère armillaire d’or.
