Presentation of Anglards-de-Salers

The municipality of Anglards-de-Salers (783 inhabitants in 2008; 4,836 ha) is located 15 km north-west of the small town of Salers, known as the cradle of the eponymous cow breed and cheese (a local variety of Cantal). The municipality is made of small settlements scattered over a large area, that is three main villages (each with a church and a cemetery) and several hamlets.

The Anglards-de-Salers tapestries, shown in Castle La Trémolière, is a set of ten tapestries considered as the oldest (second half of 16th century) preserved tapestries from the famous workshops in the neighboring province of Marche (Felletin and/or Aubusson). They were discovered by a parish priest after the castle had been transformed into a presbytery. The tapestries have an international fame due to their exceptional conservation and representation of bestiary (mix of existing and fanciful animals - here, hydra, griffin and unicorn, with a strong symbolical meaning) on a background of verdure.
The former park of the Castle houses the Déduit's Orchard, modeled on the orchard described by Guillaume de Lorris in the first part of the Roman de la Rose; this longish allegoric poem from the 13th century relates, among other events, how Déduit, entering his orchard, saw the reflection of a rose and spent the rest of his life in a quest for this particular rose.

Flag of Anglards-de-Salers

Te flag of Anglards-de-Salers, hoisted at the War Memorial, together with the flags of the European Union, France and Auvergne, is vertically divided yellow-blue (1:3).

The colors of the flags are derived from the municipal arms, "Per pale, 1. Azure a chief or, 2. Azure a fish argent per bend in chief three mullets or 2 + 1 in base two mullets of the same per bend". The municipal arms are derived from the coat of arms represented on the top of the Anglards-de-Salers tapestry portraying the three-headed hydra. The coat of arms is "Per pale Montclar and Orcival".
Guy de Montclar married Renée de Chalus d'Orcival on 8 October 1586. The tapestries indeed come from Castle Montclar, long disappeared. The village of Orcival (Auvergne) still uses the Orcival family coat of arms as its municipal arms.
