Wapen van Handzame

Official blazon

  • (1819) Van lazuur beladen met twee in elkander leggende regterhanden.
  • (1843) Een blauw veld met twee regterhanden naer het leven, te zamen gevouwen en dwars geplaetst.


The arms were granted on December 15, 1819 and confirmed on November 20, 1843.

The arms are canting, derived from Handen-samen, or hands together. When the arms were designed is not clear. Handzame is mentioned on a map of the Vrije van Brugge district from the 16th century, but, unlike most other villages mentioned, no arms are shown for the village.


The arms in the Koffie Hag/Café Hag albums +/- 1930
