Official blazon

In keel een lelie met twee uitkomende gesteelde rozen, begeleid rechts van een gesteelde en gebladerde roos en een abtsstaf, links van een omgewende sleutel en een gesteelde en gebladerde roos, alles van zilver.


The arms were officially granted on October 9, 1990.

The arms were newly created as the three former municipalities dod not have arms. The arms are based on the two seals of the village of Affligem from 1434 and 1554. The fleur-de-lys and roses are the symbols of St. Mary, the key of St. Peter, the patron saints of the Affligem Abbey. The colours are derived from the arms of the Abbey, which showed in red two crossed silver keys and a sword.
