Yan zilver met drie leliebloemen van sabel.
The arms were officially granted on March 12, 1963.
Baal historically belonged to the Land (region) of Aarschot until 1794. The village thus had no own seal or arms. In 1963 it was decided to use the Aarschot arms as arms for the municipality. To distinguish the arms of those of Aarschot, three fleur-de-lys were chosen, based on the arms of the Dukes of Aarschot from the second line.
Heraldry of the World is a private site and maintained as a hobby, which takes a lot of time and effort (and costs).
