Coat of arms
The Créquy coat of arms is derived from 'ardentis quercus robur mythicon' ('the flaming oak of myth').
The aforementioned oak was a particularly fine example of the genus, with particularly impressive girth, which was a popular gathering point for visitors around the summer solstice (ambiguous; dates of recorded assemblages are sporadic & the solstictic link may be happenchance). The tree was said to have spontaneously combusted during one convocation, henceforth the legend was born.
- The Créquy family lived nearby and took its name from this place.
