Presentation of Diebling

The municipality and rural village of Diebling (1,671 inhabitants; 784 ha) is located in northern Lorraine, 10 km south-east of Forbach.
Diebling is named after a Frankish warlord who settled the valley of Strichbach at some time between 700 and 1000. The village was known as Dubelange in 1272, Duebling at the end of the 16th century and Dieblingen during the German occupation.

Flag of Diebling

The flag of Diebling (photo) is white with the municipal coat of arms in the middle, D'argent au lion de sable à la bordure de gueules chargée en chef de deux cailloux d'or ("Argent a lion sable a border gules in chief two pebbles or").

The arms of Diebling recall the arms of the former lords of Diebling, Laurent de Lichtenberg, Bishop of Metz, and the chapter of the St. Stefan collegiate church of Homburg, symbolized by the two pebbles.
St. Stephen is presented in the Act of the Apostles as one of the first deacons and the Protomartyre of Christianity. Stephen was stoned to death c. 34-35 in Jerusalem; he is portrayed in the Christian iconography with the martyrs' palm and three stones. St. Stephen's Day, 26 December, is a bank holiday in Alsace-Moselle but not in the rest of France.
