Wapen van Haasdonk

Official blazon

Van lazuur, beladen met St. Jacob van goud.

Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on October 13, 1819.

The arms are based on the only known seal of the local council, dating from 1720. The arms show St. James, the patron saint of the village.

The colours are the Dutch national colours, as in 1813 the mayor applied without indicating the colours. The arms were thus granted in the national colours. When the arms were confirmed after the Belgian independence, the colours were not changed.
