Presentation of Saint-Jean-le-Blanc

The municipality of Saint-Jean-le-Blanc (8,234 inhabitants in 2009; 766 ha) is located 2 km south of Orléans, on the southern (left) bank of river Loire. Saint-Jean-le-Blanc was a borough of Orléans until the 19th century. "Saint-Jean" refers to the patron saint of the town, St John the Baptist, whereas "le Blanc" (the White) might refer to the white cloak of the Augustine monks, who once ran a monastery in Saint-Jean.

Flag of Saint-Jean-le-Blanc

The flag of Saint-Jean-le-Blanc is white with the municipal coat of arms in the middle.

According to Brian Timms, the coat of arms of Saint-Jean-le-Blanc, adopted in 1987, is "Azure a fess wavy argent between in chief two fleurs-de-lis or and in base a Paschal lamb overall in chief a label of three points dove-tailed also of the second".
The arms of Saint-Jean-le-Blanc are based on the traditional arms of the Duchy of Orléans. The white wave symbolizes river Loire, whereas the Paschal lamb, replacing a fleur-de-lys, recalls the patron saint of the municipality.
The coat of arms can also be read "geographically", since Orléans and Saint-Jean-le-Blanc are located on either side of the river Loire, north and south, respectively.
