The Legend of Orval tells of Countess Mathilde of Tuscany, whose ring fell into a lake within a valley in which she was holidaying. Distraught, she prayed for her ring to be returned to her and in return, she would build a monastery. A trout rose majestically out of the water with her ring in its mouth and Countess Mathilde exclaimed, "Truly this place is a Val d'Or!". She fulfilled her vow and build a monastery and till today, the coat of arms of Orval bears a trout with a ring in its mouth.
