Origin of the arms of Luxembourg

According to Crampton's The World of Flags [cra90], the arms of Luxembourg date from the medieval times. Probably these are the arms of Limburg, diffentiated by changing the silver background into ten silver and blue stripes.

On the above images, the lion is designed according to the "1993 pattern". See the discussion on that pattern.
