The house on the flag of La Heutte is a glass-works (in German Glashütte, but in French verrerie). It is quite peculiar to see that the flag is canting in German and not in French; has it been enforced by some German-speaking heraldist?
Pascal Gross, 26 January 2002

[One may doubt if a francophone community would not reverse a decision made by a German-speaking heraldist that they were once "forced" to take. Cultural appropriation is not very likely: "Hütte" (hut) can also be translated with the French "la hutte", which may have connotations to a factory, as in German.]
